A Jackson County man died when he was struck early Sunday in a Columbus parking lot by a pickup that police said left the scene. The driver of the truck was later jailed.

Witnesses told Columbus Police Department that Thomas L. Brazzell, 26, of Seymour was struck about 1:45 a.m. Sunday in a parking lot outside Caddies Pub, 2761 Central Ave. One witness said the two men had been arguing.

Brazzell, who worked as a personal trainer and sports nutritionist at Snap Fitness on West Tipton Street in Seymour, died almost instantly of multiple trauma to the head, Bartholomew County coroner Larry Fisher said. He was pronounced dead at the scene, Fisher said.
