Prior to the crash a BOL was issued for a slow moving NB vehicle in the

parked on the shoulder with no damage to it. This vehicle matched the

hazard lights on. VH#1 proceeded to move over to the left passing lane to make
room for the disabled vehicle. VH#1 then struck a male that was standing in the
passing lane. VH#1 veered from the roadway into the median and came to a
controlled stop just north of the point of impact. VH#1 sustained front end
damage in the collision. VH#2 came along after VH#1 and also collided with the
male in the roadway. VH#2 also stopped. VH#2 had minor undercarriage damage. The
