The woman walked into the highway when Burke followed her, trying to pull her away from oncoming traffic, according to NBC 4. The accident caused traffic to back up.

A gray Nissan Altima first hit Burke before a tractor-trailer also struck the man. Neither of those vehicles stopped.

A Honda CRV then hit Burke. That driver pulled over and called 911 around 10 a.m.
