A man wearing a kind of Bigfoot costume and apparently trying to create a hoax by traversing a highway in Montana has been hit by two cars, run over, and killed, according to CNN.
Randy Lee Tenley was apparently wearing a camouflage ghillie suit, which resembles earth and trees, when he walked out onto a stretch of Highway 93 Sunday night. Officials said the 44-year-old man was struck by a car driven by a 15-year-old girl, and then run over by another vehicle driven by another teenager.
Tenley’s companions said that he was trying to make drivers think they were witnessing a real live Sasquatch when he wandered into the right hand lane of the highway. Authorities are awaiting a toxicology report to see if alcohol was involved.
