Naked truck driver arrested after hit and run crash


A naked semi truck driver was taken into custody after reportedly driving the wrong way down the street and smashing into another motorist.

The incident occurred May 22, 2018 on Skelly Road in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

According to KFOR, Elbert Kennon, 32, drove through several red lights before causing a hit and run crash with another vehicle at 51st and Harvard. Kennon drove several miles the wrong way before abandoning his semi at the 8800 block of South Riverside Drive.

In an effort to escape authorities, the driver removed his clothes while running through a trailer park. Police found him in a drainage ditch, completely naked, and suspected to be on PCP. He was extremely combative and required sedation to be taken into custody.

Kennon is scheduled to be admitted to Tulsa County Jail after hospitalization. He will face several charges including hit and run, and resisting arrest.
