Elena Zamora 17, killed when she is struck by semi at intersection.
A 17-year-old pedestrian who died after being struck by a tractor trailer at a busy downtown Nashville intersection Thursday has been identified as a Hume Fogg High School student.
Metro police said Elena Zamora, a junior at Hume Fogg, was walking east to west on Church Street in a crosswalk at 1 p.m. when she was struck by a tractor trailer that was turning right from Church Street onto Rosa L. Parks Boulevard.
Indications are Elena had the signal to walk, and the truck had a green light.
The truck driver, Troy Devitt, 45, of Florence, AL, told police he didn't see the pedestrian in the crosswalk.
Devitt has not been charged. The investigators' findings will be sent to the district attorney's office for a determination.
