The impact caused the man to be pushed into the outside lane, troopers said.

Another vehicle, a 2019 Chevy Silverado, was driving west in the outside lane of U.S. Highway 92, troopers said. The man landed in the path of the Chevy, which then ran him over, troopers added.

Troopers said they received reports that two more vehicles may have run over the man after the initial strike.

The man died on-scene, though the Chevy driver was not injured and remained at the scene, according to troopers.
