TULLAHOMA, TN. (AP) - Authorities in Tennessee say a naked man who was causing a disturbance at a grocery store was killed in a crash fleeing officers.

News outlets report Tullahoma Police responded to an incident involving a nude man at a food store early Wednesday morning. A Tennessee Highway Patrol crash report says police pursued 29-year-old Lawrence Bean's car, but ended the chase due to high speeds.

Police say they lost contact with Bean, but his car later went off the road and slammed into a mailbox, trees and some rocks. Bean's car then hit a parked vehicle and flipped onto its roof.

Highway patrol said Bean was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The crash is being investigated.

No details were provided on the incident at the grocery store.
