A pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle Thursday afternoon is recovering from his injuries.

The incident occurred at the intersection of West Main Street and South Hartmann Drive at about 4:10 p.m., said Lebanon Police Officer Robert Bates.

Bates said Pamela Jarvis of Murfreesboro was traveling west on West Main Street and was turning to head south on South Hartmann Drive as the pedestrian, identified as Andrew Greer of Lebanon, was crossing South Hartmann at West Main headed east.

Bates noted that Greer was crossing the street against the pedestrian traffic signal, and that Jarvis did have the left turn arrow as she proceeded to make her turn.

Jarvis’s view was partially obstructed by the front post that holds the top of the car onto the body. She drove a 2011 Nissan Versa.

“She didn’t see him,” the officer said.

The impact caused Greer to land on the hood of the car, and then strike the windshield. He was transported to University Medical Center by Wilson County Emergency Management Agency ambulance with non-life threatening injuries.

Bates said Greer was walking home from the Shell gas station on West Main Street after purchasing a scratch-off lottery ticket.

The cause of the accident, the officer said, was failure to yield to a pedestrian signal. There were no citations issued or charges filed as a result of the accident.
