TUSTIN, Calif. (AP) — The California Highway Patrol says a man has died after he jumped naked out of an ambulance on a freeway and was hit by a truck while trying to flee.

CHP Officer John Patterson told The Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/v477y5) the man began acting erratically Friday as the ambulance was northbound on Interstate 5 in Tustin.

The driver stopped in the center divider area and the man leaped out the back.

Patterson says the man jumped over the divider's concrete wall, ran across southbound lanes and onto a connector road, where an off-duty deputy grabbed him and tried to calm him down.

Patterson says the man broke free and jumped in front of a pickup truck that struck and killed him. His name hasn't been released.
