Kentucky Man Struck After Getting Out Of Car On I-24E In Clarksville

CREATED Jul 11, 2014
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – A Kentucky man was struck by a vehicle after police said he stopped his vehicle suddenly and got out on Interstate 24 eastbound in Clarksville on Thursday afternoon.

Clarksville Police said a Ford Fiesta driven by Timothy Walsh was driving erratically along the interstate, according to witnesses. Around 3:10 p.m., he cut another vehicle off and suddenly stopped his car near mile marker 2 near the Tennessee-Kentucky state line.

The witnesses told officers Walsh, of Oak Grove, Kentucky, was cussing, yelling, and waving his arms when he got out of his vehicle and tried to approach the other vehicle involved, a Dodge Caliber.


Police said Walsh's abrupt stop of his vehicle caused a rear-end collision, and he was struck outside his vehicle.


It was unclear if Walsh was injured, as police said his condition was unknown. Also unknown if anyone else was injured.


The investigation was pending, and police said charges were possible. 

The interstate was blocked for several hours while police investigated the crash.
