A naked man who was reportedly doing push-ups in the road was struck and killed by a car early yesterday in Portland, Oregon.

Officers responded after getting a report just after 4am local time that a naked man was running in traffic near North Columbia Boulevard and Portsmouth Avenue.

A second report came in that the man was doing push-ups in the road, and a third said he had been hit by a car.

Portland police say the driver who hit the pedestrian was not impaired by alcohol or drugs.

The road was closed for several hours. The state medical examiner's office will conduct a post-mortem examination.

The name of the dead man has not been released.
