CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – A pedestrian was taken to the hospital after being struck by a vehicle in Montgomery County.

Officers with the Clarksville Police Department were called to the intersection of Tiny Town Road and Needmore Road on the north side of town at 6:35 p.m. Friday.

A driver identified as 41-year-old Malaena Borger was driving a Toyota Paseo westbound on Tiny Town Road. She had a green light at Needmore Road and proceeded through the intersection. 

Police said at that moment, 25-year-old Clarksville resident Edward Holt tried to run cross the road between oncoming traffic. 

Holt was wearing dark clothing, and Borger did not see him in time to avoid a collision. Holt was struck by the vehicle. 

Details about Holt's injuries were not available, but officials said he was alive when police arrived on the scene.

Holt was transported by LifeFlight medical helicopter to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville.

Officials said there was an ongoing investigation and did not say if the driver faced any possible charges. 

A search of satellite imagery did not show any crosswalks in the area.
