Daniels was crossing Old Hickory Boulevard near Central Pike when he was struck by the driver of a 2000 Ford pickup truck. The driver did not stop. Skirvin returned to the scene around 10:30 p.m. A DUI officer responded. Skirvin smelled of alcohol, had watery, bloodshot eyes, and admitted to drinking three beers earlier in the day. Skirvin consented to a breath test which showed his blood alcohol content to be .09%.
The area is not well lit and Daniels was not in a crosswalk.
