A naked carjacking suspect was caught after reportedly causing two separate car accidents that injured seven people and shut down multiple roads in Scottsdale on Friday afternoon, officials said.
The man who caused a three-car accident at Hayden Road and Via De Ventura in Scottsdale is believed to have carjacked a blue Toyota Prius that, soon after, caused another multiple-vehicle accident about 2:00 p.m. at 90th Street and Shea Boulevard, said Bruce Dressel of the Scottsdale Traffic Management Center.
Police received a call about 1:30 p.m. about the first collision at Hayden and Via De Ventura, where three people were hurt, said Sgt. Mark Clark, a Scottsdale police spokesman.
Witnesses said the man ran into a Porsche, causing it to crash with another vehicle, and then got out of his car, took off his clothes, jumped onto a vehicle and started chanting and singing, Clark said.
The suspect then approached a Prius, pulled the female driver out of the car and drove northbound on Hayden Road, Clark said.
The woman was not injured. The man in the Porsche was ejected on impact and sustained serious injuries, but they are not life-threatening.
Police believe the suspect then attempted to drive the Prius eastbound in the westbound lanes of Shea when he collided with three other vehicles, Clark said.
