A Houston-area man known by police for riding his unicycle naked has died after being hit by an SUV while clothed and pedaling at night.
La Porte, Texas, police say 48-year-old Joseph Glynn Farley of Clear Lake was killed Tuesday night when his unicycle was hit from behind.
Sgt. John Krueger on Wednesday said Farley was wearing black shorts, a backpack and apparently a reflective vest, which was found nearby. Krueger says the unicycle had lights and was operating legally on a thoroughfare.
The SUV driver, who wasn't hurt, called 911 to report the accident.
