A man was reportedly naked and doing push-ups in the middle of a busy road in Portland, Oregon, when he was struck by a car and killed on Sunday morning.

According to Fox 12, police initially responded to a call about a naked man running in traffic near the intersection of North Columbia Boulevard and Portsmouth Avenue, but while they were on their way to the scene, they received a second call he was doing push-ups in the road, before a third call that he had been hit.

The unidentified man died at the scene and police said the driver was cooperative and was not impaired by drugs or alcohol, New York Daily News reports.

An autopsy will be conducted by the Oregon Medical Examiner's Office to determine the man's cause of death.

Last month, a pensioner was killed as she tried to shoo away an injured goose from a country road.

Lynette Brimble, 67, suffered severe head and other injuries when she was hit head on by a car along the dark road.

Mrs Brimble was on her way home after watching a play with her neighbour Ann Clough when she spotted the injured goose in their lane on the A377 near Crediton, Devon.

Mrs Clough said in a statement to Plymouth and south Devon coroner Ian Arrow that when the pair turned around the injured goose was still sitting in the lane of the 60mph road.

She said Mrs Brimble, who lived in Lapford, Devon, repeatedly flashed her headlights at an oncoming car which she had seen in the pitch black road where there were no street lights.

She then got out of her car to try and 'shoo' the goose away. Mrs Clough said that Mrs Brimble was 'half in, half out' of her Citroen Zara.

'The next thing I knew the oncoming car had hit Lynette. I heard a bang and saw her flying down the road.'
