NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - One person was seriously injured after being struck in the middle of a busy intersection on Broadway on Friday night.
The victim was identified as 23-year-old Norman Stevenson of Franklin. Investigators said Stevenson was seriously injured and is being treated at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Stevenson reportedly collided with a Toyota Sienna minivan around 7 p.m. The minivan was stopped at the intersection waiting for heavy traffic to clear to make a left turn onto Broadway from 4th Avenue South.
Metro Police said the contributing factor appears to be Stevenson's failure to obey a traffic control device and that Stevenson was not allowed to be in the roadway anyways according to state law.
The roadway remained closed for several hours Friday night.
