    Police in Connecticut say a naked man was seriously injured after jumping out the back of a moving pickup truck.

    Wilton police say 34-year-old John Rodas, of Gardiner, New York, was taken to a hospital with a life-threatening head injury after Sunday's incident on Route 7.

    The driver told officers a naked man jumped into the back of his truck.

    Police say the man later jumped out while the truck was moving and landed in the road.

    A prosecutor says a burning charcoal grill caused the deaths of a woman and three children whose bodies were found in a car in upstate New York.

    Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick tells the Syracuse Post-Standard the apparent murder-suicide was caused by carbon monoxide poisoning from charcoal burning in the car's trunk. Fitzpatrick says the children were 3, 7 and 8 years old.

    Syracuse Police Chief Kenton Buckner says the driver of a tow truck called to remove an overdue ride-share car from a driveway Sunday afternoon discovered the dead woman and children inside and called 911.

    Names of the victims have not been released
