It appears that Jacob Lewis was in a vehicle traveling along the freeway when Lewis's vehicle broke down and came to a stop. Lewis was apparently behind the vehicle attempting to push it when another vehicle crashed into Lewis and his vehicle.

Due to the collision, Lewis sustained ultimately fatal injuries. April Elizabeth Bancroft was said to be in the driver's seat of the vehicle Lewis was pushing. It's unconfirmed at this time if Bancroft sustained injuries.

Right now, authorities allege that the driver who hit Lewis was drunk. That driver apparently left the scene of the accident, but a witness was able to follow that driver until police then engaged in a pursuit. Authorities eventually apprehended the suspected drunk driver. That driver is said to be facing charges for DWI and Failure to Stop and Render Aid. No further information is available at this time.
