LAPD Unit Looking For Nude Man Runs Him Over
A Los Angeles Police Department patrol unit en route to a report of a nude man in the street ended up hitting and killing the pedestrian, police said.
You might not want to judge the driver too harshly, here, however. The victim wasn't where cops were told he was, and he was lying in the street, LAPD Officer Joel Morales told us.
It happened ...
... at a bout 10:20 last night at West Adams Boulevard and Buckingham Road in the West Adams district, he said.

Police received a report of "a nude man running in the street at Adams and Hillcrest [Drive]," which is a couple blocks from where the pedestrian was hit, Morales said.
The patrol car was headed east when it hit the man, he said. The victim was lying with his feet pointed to the west when he was struck, the officer said.
Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded and pronounced the man in his late 50s or early 60s dead at the scene, Morales said.
The LAPD's Multi-Disciplinary Collision Investigation Team (MCIT) was in charge of the department's inquiry into the accident, he said.
The man had yet to be identified.
