A man has been struck by a car and was killed as he was reportedly doing naked press-ups in the road early yesterday in Portland, Oregon. Officers responded to a report shortly after 4am local time of a naked man running in the traffic close to North Columbia Boulevard and Portsmouth Avenue.
There was then a second report to say that the man had been doing naked press-ups in the road, and then a third report to say that the man had been hit by a car.
Portland police have said that the driver of the car which hit the pedestrian had not been impaired by any alcohol or drugs.
The road was closed for several hours. A post-mortem examination is to be carried out by the state medical examiner’s office.
The dead man’s name has not been released.
