Judah R. Bryndal

Judah's Story


DOD: December 21, 2017

The pedestrian struck and killed on Lebanon Pike near Central Pike at 8:15 p.m. Thursday, December 21, 2017, was not carrying identification.  Later, he was identified as Judah R. Bryndal, 22, of Nashville      

The pedestrian was either sitting or attempting to stand up in the left travel lane of Lebanon Pike when he was struck by a Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by Roger Hanson, 69, of Nashville.  Hanson said he did not see the pedestrian until seconds before impact and could not avoid striking him.  The immediate area was not well lit.        

The pedestrian had a bicycle.  Witnesses told officers that they saw him standing in the left travel lane trying to pick up the bike when he fell over.  He was hit shortly after that.       

No charges are anticipated against Hanson.      

Toxicology testing on a blood sample from the pedestrian will be performed by the medical examiner.
