Metro police have identified the victim of Monday's fatal hit-and-run on Clarksville Pike as a 51-year-old Nashville woman.

Police say Mary Katherine Frazier, of Hydes Ferry Road, was crossing Clarksville Pike outside of a crosswalk when she was hit by a 2000 Chevrolet pickup truck. The woman died at the scene.

A man who works in the area said he was closing up for the night when he heard a loud crash near Clarksville Pike at Buena Vista Pike around 11 p.m. When he ran to see what happened, he says he saw a woman lying in the road and the vehicle had already left the scene.

Police say the truck's radiator ruptured in the collision, leaving a trail of fluids that led officers to the 2800 block of Hydes Ferry Road. The victim's shoe was also found underneath the truck.

Fred Edwards, the owner of the pickup truck, was taken to the North Precinct and interviewed.

The 76-year-old told police that he was not involved in the crash and someone must have taken his truck from his driveway and then returned it.

No charges have been filed against Edwards at this time, but the investigation is ongoing.

The nearest crosswalk was 200 feet away from where the crash happened, police say.
