A salesman for “The Contributor” newspaper was walking to his sales location when a motorist struck him in Antioch Thursday morning.

A preliminary investigation indicates the driver left the scene, but later returned.

The victim was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in critical but stable condition.

Police reported that the driver, a 21 year old, was driving on a learner's permit.

Charges are pending.

No further information was released.

One outbound lane of Murfreesboro Pike was closed while authorities investigated.  It has since reopened.
