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

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

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, Calif.

The CHP says after Hartline caused several crashes, the big-rig overturned on Interstate 15 and spilled its load of strawberries, all because he said there were zombies.

Seven people were injured.

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