BELLEVUE, Tenn. – A 69-year-old man was critically injured after he was struck by a minivan as he tried to cross a busy street in Bellevue on Monday evening.
Officials with the Metro Nashville Police Department said Patrick Nelson, Jr. was attempting to cross Old Hickory Boulevard when he was struck by a Nissan Quest minivan that had turned left out of Kroger just before 6:30 p.m.
Nelson was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he was said to be in critical condition Tuesday.
