Man Is Flung From Roof of His Speeding Minivan, Runs Naked Along Highway

In Pennsylvania, a naked man who was catapulted from a moving minivan, Tazered three times and finally tackled to the ground by police is in fair condition this weekend, it is reported.

According to the Reading Eagle newspaper, police say they responded to calls Friday from frantic motorists who reported seeing a man climb on top of his minivan roof while it was moving about 55 miles per hour, and watched as he was flung into the woods as the vehicle crashed into a highway guide rail.

Witnesses said the man then climbed up an embankment, took off his clothes and ran on the shoulder of a busy highway bleeding from a foot-long gash in his side, the paper said.

In an unrelated story happening in roughly the same neighborhood, Secret Service agents had a scare after losing contact with former President Bill Clinton for a time while he was campaigning for his wife, Senator Hillary Clinton.

"The Reading PD was a big help in locating Mr. Clinton for us," senior Service officials told the Reading Eagle, adding that the ex President apparently took upon himself to visit Reading Hospital to tell campaign workers there how much he appreciated all of the fine work.
