Al Star

Al Star's Story


DOD: February 1, 2019

Al Star, 66, of Nashville, was a pedestrian at the intersection of Trinity Ln and Brick Church Pk at 11:25am on Friday, February 1, 2019, when he was struck and fatally injured by a Nashville Ready Mix cement truck.    The investigation shows that Star was crossing Brick Church Pike as the cement truck turned left onto Brick Church Pike from Trinity Lane.  Star was hit in the roadway.  The driver of the truck, Evans Bridges, 71, of Madison, said he saw Star as he was making the left turn and could not stop in time.  Star was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died.    There is no crosswalk at the intersection, but Star was crossing where a crosswalk would typically be.  Fatal Crash officers have not determined who had the right of way.  Their investigation is continuing.  There was no indication of impairment on the part of either individual.      

In 2018, Markeith Bass perished on foot at this intersection.

Also in 2018, Michael C Anderson died in a hit and run crash at this same intersection.

In 2017, Ayda Abdelsayed perished as a pedestrian at this intersection, too.
