A naked man suffered a significant head injury after jumping from a moving pickup truck in north Wilton around 9:15 a.m. Sunday, July 7.
The man was first reported seen coming out of the woods and running around in the middle of Route 7 near Days Inn in Redding, where he hopped into the bed of a truck headed south.
"The truck was stopped in traffic and the man came out of the woods and tried to open one of the truck's doors but they were all locked," said Sergeant Anna Tornello of the Wilton Police Department. "Traffic started moving so the man hopped into the bed of the truck and that's when the driver began dialing 911 ... Luckily, for the driver his doors were locked when the man originally came out of the woods."
Tornello said that her department was called to the scene after the man had jumped out of the truck.
