Naked man hit by vehicle pulling a trailer on Highway 20, milepost 29 Sunday evening.

An Eddyville man was critically injured Sunday evening when he was struck by a trailer being pulled by a Salem man at around 7:20pm. Motorists told Oregon State Police that Amos McLean, 38, had been harassing passing traffic. When vehicles didn’t stop, they said McLean walked to a nearby vehicle, pulled out a USPS mail carrying box, put it down in the middle of the eastbound lane and sat on it. At that point, traffic came to a stand still.

Troopers say witnesses then watched McLean approach a pickup that was pulling a trailer. They say McLean began beating on the side of the pickup, throwing his body against it, punching the side. As the driver pulled away, the travel trailer hit McLean, throwing him to the pavement.

Upon arrival of an ambulance and a sheriff’s deputy, McLean was loaded aboard the ambulance and rushed to the regional trauma center in Corvallis where he was reported to be in critical condition. No explanation was offered for his behavior. Highway 20 was blocked for about an hour while crash investigators measured points within the accident scene and interviewed witnesses.
