Witnesses said there was a possible disabled white utility vehicle on the right shoulder with hazard lights on.
According to the NHP report, an adult male was standing outside the vehicle, it is unknown if he was the driver of that vehicle or a pedestrian, when another utility van in the far right travel lane failed to maintain its lane and struck the driver/pedestrian.
