Efforts are continuing to identify a female pedestrian who was struck and killed late Friday night on Bell Road near Nashboro Village.

A witness reported that he was traveling on Bell Road at 11:22 p.m. when he saw the pedestrian on the ground near the fog line waving at him in an apparent attempt to get him to stop. The witness turned around and headed back in the direction of the woman when he saw a Nissan Rogue SUV run over her as she seemed to be crawling into the traffic lane. The driver of the Nissan, Olufunmila Talabi, 61, drove to a market a short distance away. She showed no signs of impairment and no charges are anticipated against her.

The pedestrian carried no identification. She is black, appeared to be between the ages of 20 and 30, and had long braided hair with extensions. She was wearing a jacket with a flower embroidered on the back and shorts.

Anyone knowing the identity of the victim is asked to contact the Communications Center at 615-862-8600.
