Half-nude man dies after fleeing EMS care

Medics found him inside a Jeep with his lower body exposed; he broke free as they tried to move him, drove off dragging the gurney, and crashed into a truck


SAN ANTONIO, Texas — A strange and confusing incident ended Sunday afternoon with a man dead after police say he ran from EMS treatment and crashed his SUV before officers used a taser to subdue him.

"For whatever reason the male became agitated during the treatment," said Sgt. Javier Salazar of the San Antonio Police Department.

The bizarre incident began around 12:30 p.m. when EMS responded to treat a man on the Interstate 35 access road near Eisenhauer Road. They arrived to find the partially nude man inside a Jeep Cherokee with his lowered body exposed.
