    After the near-accident, Munoz pulled over to the side of the road to help the pedestrian. It was then he saw the man get hit by the semi.

    The man was pronounced dead at the scene. No arrests were made, and there were no other injuries.

    The pedestrian's name was not immediately released by authorities.
