Wesley's Story


DOD: November 20, 2017

The pedestrian struck and killed Monday, November 20, 2017, at 7:15 p.m. on Trinity Lane at Interstate 65 in Nashville is identified as Wesley Ferrell, 51.       

The preliminary investigation shows that Ferrell was attempting to cross Trinity Lane when he was struck by a westbound 2004 Chevrolet Impala being driven by Anastasia Rawlings, 30, of Nashville.  Rawlings reported that Ferrell walked in front of her car and she was unable to avoid the collision.  He was not in a crosswalk and may have been going to a homeless camp in the nearby woodline. Ferrell was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died.       

There was no indication at the scene of drug or alcohol involvement on the part of Rawlings.  No charges are anticipated.
