Naked man seriously injured after jumping from pickup truck



WILTON, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut say a naked man was seriously injured after he jumped out of the back of a moving pickup truck.

Wilton police say 34-year-old John Rodas, of Gardiner, New York, was taken to a hospital with a life-threatening head injury after Sunday’s incident on Route 7. He remained hospitalized Monday. His condition was not released.

The pickup driver told officers a naked man jumped into the back of his truck after unsuccessfully trying to open the locked doors. Police say the man later jumped out of the truck while it was moving and landed in the road.

It was not immediately clear if Rodas has a lawyer who could respond to the allegations.

Connecticut records show Rodas has a criminal record that includes assault and drug convictions.
