Investigators said that 45-year-old Christian Sykes was in a Chevy Suburban that was westbound along the highway. It appears a Chevy Silverado somehow crashed into the back of Sykes's vehicle.

Ultimately, it appears Sykes died as a result of the crash. A 5-year-old had unspecified injuries. As of August 18, it appears authorities arrested who they believe was the driver of the pickup.
