MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A sex offender who was watching pornography on his phone while walking down the sidewalk was killed by a runaway trailer.

WMC-TV reported that 55-year-old Kevin Jordan was killed in the freak accident Wednesday in Memphis, Tenn.

It happened after a 15-foot trailer hauling tires came unhinged after the truck it was on hit a bump in the road. The trailer hit Jordan, killing him instantly.

Jordan had a lengthy criminal history, including five separate rape charges, for which he served time prison in the early 1990s.

Jordan was arrested just last year for indecent exposure. But his fiancee, Connie Harris, said he had turned his life around and did not deserve to die this way.

“He had his life in order,” Harris said. “It’s a big loss. I love him. I still love him.”

No one has been cited in the incident, which remains under investigation.
