Upon further investigation, police determined that two vehicles, a Volkswagen and a Dodge, had been travelling eastbound and pulled over – the result of “an apparent driving dispute.”

Both parties made allegations of tailgating and high-beaming.

Another occupant in the Volkswagen then stepped out of the vehicle but in the process stepped into oncoming traffic. He was struck by an oncoming truck.
