Nashville, TN — The trucker who was behind the wheel of the 18-wheeler that killed 17-year old Elena Zamora last December is now facing charges. Police said that Zamora was hit and killed by Troy Devitt’s 18-wheeler as she tried to walk across Church Street in Nashville’s downtown area.
The accident happened on December 19, 2013 at the intersection of Church Street and Rosa Parks Boulevard/U.S. 41. Police indicated that Zamora was crossing the street in a crosswalk with the “wall” signal when Devitt’s 18-wheeler truck tried to make a right turn onto Rosa Parks and hit her.
Zamora died at the scene and police said that Devitt was eventually charged with failure to yield the right-of-way. He is going before a court later this summer, they said.
