Police: Man charged with DUI in crash that killed pedestrian
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Police say a man has been charged with DUI in a hit-and-run crash that killed a pedestrian in Tennessee.
Metro Nashville police tell news outlets that 24-year-old Christopher Skirvin is also charged with leaving the scene of a fatal crash, driving on a revoked license and failure to render aid. He was arrested on Tuesday.
A police affidavit says 50-year-old Dwight Daniels was the pedestrian who died at a hospital after he was struck while crossing a road Monday night.
Police say Skirvin left the scene of the collision but returned roughly two hours later. Police say they smelled alcohol on his breath and he agreed to a breath test, which had a result over the legal limit for driving.
It's unclear if Skirvin has a lawyer who could comment.
