A Montana man who tried to stage a Bigfoot hoax died after he was hit by two cars.

The Montana Highway Patrol says the man was wearing a military style "Ghillie suit" and was standing in the right-hand lane of U.S. Highway 93 south of Kalispell when he was hit by the first car Sunday night. A second car hit him as he lay in the roadway.

Flathead County officials identified the man as 44-year-old Randy Lee Tenley of Kalispell.

Trooper Jim Schneider tells the Daily Inter Lake that Tenley's motives were ascertained during interviews with friends.

The patrol says Tenley was struck by vehicles driven by two girls, ages 15 and 17, who were unable to stop in time.
