Around 12:15 on Tuesday afternoon, a motorist struck a pedestrian on South Church Street in Murfreesboro.
The pedestrian was walking on the shoulder of the road in a grassy area and was clipped by the mirror of a passing vehicle. The driver of the vehicle was given a traffic citation for failure to exercise due care.
Reports indicate the pedestrian was alert when an ambulance arrived and transported the subject to the hospital. MPD Spokesperson Larry Flowers told WGNS that the pedestrian was able to actually walk to the gurney to get into the ambulance on his own accord.
The injury sustained by the pedestrian was not believed to be serious.
