By Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Nashville woman has been struck and killed after hanging yard sale signs on power poles.

Police said 60-year-old Patricia Sharpe died late Thursday night after being struck by a pickup truck as she crossed Highway 70 South in a crosswalk.

Officers said no charges have been filed but the investigation is continuing. A news release Friday from police said Sharpe apparently did not have a green light to walk across the roadway.
