NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro police want to speak with a man who they say is a person-of-interest in the hit-and-run accident Monday morning that left a crossing guard hurt.

According to a release from police, the person of interest is described as an Asian man with black hair. He was wearing glasses at the time.

A passerby took a photo of an unidentified man kneeling over crossing guard Lemuel Frazier after the accident. That passerby told police they believe the man may be the driver.

Police said the man left the scene before officers arrived and they now hope to speak with him. Anyone with information on his identity or whereabouts is asked to call 615-862-7713.

The car involved in the accident is a red four door, possibly a Chevrolet Aveo. The passenger side mirror was knocked off in the accident.

Frazier has since been treated and released at a Nashville hospital for bruising and a knee injury.

He was wearing a reflective vest and holding an 18-inch reflective stop sign when the collision occurred.
