An American man posing as the mysterious ape-like creature Bigfoot, has been killed in a freak road accident on a highway in Montana.
The man was dressed in a military-style camouflage costume worm by snipers and hunters. Local police reportedly identified the victim as 44-year-old Randy Lee Tenley.
He had been challenged to convince passing motorists they were witnessing a sighting of the reclusive Sasquatch.
He was in the right-hand lane of the highway when he was first hit by a car driven by a 15-year-old girl. When another car swerved to avoid him, the third vehicle driven by a 17-year-old girl ran him over again.
Highway Patrol trooper Jim Schneider was quoted as saying that the man’s camouflage suit was partly to blame for his death as it hindered the ability of people to clearly see him on the highway.
The police are waiting for toxicology results to see if alcohol played a role in the accident.
