Clarksville Police are investigating the death of Pfc. Austin McReynolds, 21, who was hit by a vehicle as he was leaving a bar after closing time Saturday morning.

Army Capt. David Elliott, 26, admits to being the driver of the vehicle that struck McReynolds.

Capt. Elliott, 26, has been charged with driving on a revoked license, (no reason listed for the revocation) felony DUI, and vehicular homicide.

The Soldiers both left O’Connor’s Irish Pub and Grill on Tylertown Road in Clarksville, Tenn., after 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning; McReynolds walking, Elliott behind the wheel of his vehicle. Elliott, who admitted to law enforcement officers that he had been drinking, also admits to hitting "something he thought was a deer."

Both Soldiers are believed to be based at nearby Fort Campbell (Kentucky).

Capt. Elliott is now being held in the Montgomery County (Tennessee) jail without bond. He will face a judge later today.
