A man who was driving naked has been arrested following a bizarre crash on a stretch of Interstate 49 in Shreveport, Louisiana about 1 p.m. Sunday.

Shreveport police officers responded to a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 49 in which a vehicle flipped numerous times after plowing into the back of two unsuspecting motorists.

Witnesses reported that a man driving a grey Mitsubishi sedan had been observed traveling northbound on I-49 at excessive speeds, when he slammed into the rear end of a Cadillac sedan occupied by Warren and Linda Windham of Shreveport. The force of the collision was such that Mitsubishi flipped multiple times landing on its side.

It was learned that the driver of the Mitsubishi, Weston Ericson, 37, of Diamond Head, Mississippi crawled from his disabled vehicle at which time he began to physically assault Mrs. Windham. Ericson, who was completely void of any clothing, was ultimately restrained by passing motorists who witnessed the attack and subdued him until officers arrived. Mrs. Windham received only minor injuries.

Ericson, who sustained a possible broken arm in the crash was subsequently transported to LSUHSC and ultimately charged with DWI first offense. Mr. Warren complained of neck and back pain and was transported to an area hospital.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing at this hour.
