Pizza delivery driver involved in fatal hit and run

A pizza delivery driver hit a pedestrian in the dark on Nolensville Pike Saturday night, and shortly thereafter left the scene of the accident.  The pedestrian, Stephen Moseley, died that night at the hospital.

The driver, Jay Jackson, reported to police that he felt an impact on his van, got out to find a man sitting up and surrounded by bystanders, then left the scene.  Police caught up with him later at his workplace.

Police investigators are still trying to determine the fault of the accident, as Moseley had been drinking, was crossing away from a crosswalk, and was wearing dark clothing on a dark rainy night.  Although it is the responsibility of the driver to make every reasonable effort to stop for pedestrians, police believe that because of the conditions, Jackson may not have seen Moseley.
