TX, 21-year-old Dylan Young of Dallas, TX, and 19-year-old Broderick Moore of Cedar Hill, TX. “The initial in ve*tigation opened that a 1999 Jeep Laredo was stalled on the northbound shoulder of I-49. The occupants of the Jeep were trying to swap a flat tire on the vehicle.
For reasons still under observation, a northbound 1997 Freightliner, driven by 62-year-old Clyde Gay of Coushatta, drifted onto the northbound shoulder, st*uck the left side of the Jeep and impacted all 3 pedestrians.” The p*lice report also said that Williams,
