NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A citizen’s tip led Metro police to a pickup truck they say was involved in a hit-and-run that injured a 25-year-old woman.

The 2002 Dodge Ram was found parked on Albee Drive in Hermitage late Friday afternoon around 3:45 p.m.

Metro police say the truck’s owner has been tentatively identified as Herminio Agular, age unknown.

Agular’s landlord reported that he suddenly packed his belongings on Wednesday and vacated the rental.

His current whereabouts are unknown. Officers have been told he may be fleeing to Mexico.

The pedestrian, 25-year-old Shelby Lacewell, remains in critical but stable condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She was hit Tuesday afternoon at Nolensville Road and Morton Avenue.
