Johnson was also westbound on Lincoln Parkway and was coming up behind Lewis. Johnson said he saw Lewis apply his brakes for no apparent reason. Johnson said he tried to avoid Lewis by braking and swerving to the left, but his brakes failed. Johnson was unable to avoid Lewis and hit the rear of his vehicle. Johnson continued north through the median, across the southbound traffic lanes and into the ditch on the west side.
