Patrol officers responded to the crash about 12:40 a.m. Thursday in the 4300 block of Interstate 20 W.
Investigators said two disabled vehicles were on the shoulder of the highway, and Holbrook was standing outside one of them.
A truck driven by Churkey was traveling east on the highway when it drifted off the road and hit the two vehicles on the shoulder, police said.
On impact, one of the vehicles hit Holbrook, police said. Investigators said they believe alcohol contributed to the crash.
