A man has life-threatening injuries after police said he jumped into the bed of a pick-up truck and jumped out while it was still moving in Wilton on Friday morning.
Officers were called to the Ridgefield/Wilton line around 9:24 a.m. after getting a report of a naked man that had jumped out of a pick-up truck while it was still moving.
Police said the incident started in Ridgefield when a man was driving south on Danbury Road by the Days Inn and saw what he thought was a dead deer on the side of the road.
According to police, the man slowed down to look at the object next to the road when he said he realized it was a naked man laying on the ground.
The naked man then jumped up and leaped into the bed of the man's pick-up truck, authorities added.
The man in the pick-up truck continued to drive south on Danbury Road and called 911. While he was still driving on Danbury Road in Wilton, the driver said the naked man jumped out of the pick-up truck while it was still moving and landed on the side of the road.
The naked man was transported to Danbury Hospital with life-threatening injuries. The man who was driving the pickup truck was released from the scene without charges, authorities said.
The incident remains under investigation by Wilton and Ridgefield Police Departments.
