Man pleads guilty to stealing truck to flee zombies

Posted: Updated:
TEMECULA, CA -

A Tennessee man who stole a big-rig truck in California, caused several accidents and told investigators he was fleeing zombies when he did it has pleaded guilty to several felonies.

U-T San Diego reports Jerimiah Hartline pleaded guilty yesterday to assault with a deadly weapon, hit-and-run causing death or injury, and vehicle theft. He could get five years in prison.

The California Highway Patrol says Hartline stowed away in the truck in Tennessee and stole it when the driver got out at roadside scales near Temecula, California. The CHP says after Hartline caused several crashes, the rig overturned on Interstate 15 and spilled a load of strawberries. Seven people were injured.

CHP investigators say Hartline told them he had to speed and swerve because he was fleeing from the walking dead.
