Fairfax County police have arrested a man they say stripped naked after crashing his car, assaulted a driver, and jumped on a passing vehicle on southbound Route 28 near Washington Dulles International Airport on Tuesday.

The man faces multiple charges that are pending as police work to identify him.

According to police, the man was involved in a three-vehicle hit-and-run collision around around 3:30 p.m. Following the crash, the man got out of his car and assaulted one of the other drivers involved in the accident. He then took off his clothes and jumped on a passing truck, causing damage, before fleeing from the scene.

A statement from the Fairfax County Police Department says the bizarre incident caused "major traffic delays" during rush hour around the major international airport.
