The victim, identified as Shadai N. Collins, 24, of West Palm Beach, had walked into traffic and was standing in the left turning lane, according to a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office report. 

At 9:52 p.m., a vehicle was heading southbound at 5951 N. Haverhill Road and began to merge into the turn lane.
