Nude Oregon man on highway hit by trailer, dies

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say a nude man who was hit by a trailer as he wandered in the middle of a state highway has died in a Corvallis hospital.

The Oregonian says troopers identified the man who died Thursday as 38-year-old Amos McLean of Eddyville.

Police got a call Sunday night about a naked man waving branches and shouting while standing on Oregon 20. They soon learned the man had been hit by a vehicle and critically injured.

Troopers say the man had been sitting in the westbound lane when a pickup with a travel trailer approached. They say the man threw his body against the side of the truck and punched at it before being struck by the trailer.
