They were picking up trash in the median of Interstate 65 near County Road 20 in Autousa County, Alabama, when Donald W. Biester, 70, left the road and struck Shoultz and McKee. Biester drove several more miles down the road before he was apprehended by police. The day before, Biester had been stopped for erratic driving.
McKee was killed. Shoultz suffered injuries to his right arm, right elbow, right shoulder, and back. He may require back surgery in the future. The January 4, 2005, incident resulted in a federal lawsuit, alleging motor vehicle negligence, wantonness and/or recklessness. On February 14, 2007, the confidential settlement was reached.
