DULLES, Va. - Police have identified a man who crashed a truck near Washington Dulles International Airport Tuesday, and then began running in the roadway naked and jumping on cars. The incident caused major traffic delays during rush hour.
Fairfax County police said Wednesday that the man seen in the video is 32-year-old Jose Gonzalez Flores, of Sterling. They say he was involved in a crash with two different cars in the southbound lanes of Sully Road near Frying Pan Road.
After the accident, they say Gonzalez Flores assaulted one of the other involved drivers before going back to his pickup truck, and throwing items into the road.
Then, police say, he took off his clothes and ran into traffic. At one point, he jumped on a passing truck, breaking its window. Police say the truck driver stopped safely, and Gonzalez Flores ran from the scene.
Officers eventually find Gonzalez Flores in a drainage ditch on Dulles Airport property, and he was admitted to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police have obtained warrants for multiple charges against Gonzalez Flores, including felony hit-and-run, throwing an object at a moving vehicle, destruction of property, assault and battery, indecent exposure, disorderly conduct, and possession of marijuana. Those warrants will not be served until Gonzalez Flores is released from the hospital.
According to investigators, it's not yet clear if he suffered a medical emergency after the accident, or if he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Wild video shot by a witness at the scene was shared with FOX 5 DC. It shows the man jumping in the bed of the pick-up truck before he starts running around on the roadway.
Theo Garner saw the whole thing from his Herndon office building.
"Out of the corner of my eye, I see a guy half naked guy cross eight lanes of traffic on 28. He then climbs up on the back of the dump truck that a pickup truck had slammed into the back of, disrobes and then proceeds to throw things on 28," he says.
The video shows the man attempting to climb up into the dump truck as vehicles attempt to pull away from the scene. At one point, it appears the man jumps onto the back of a passing truck, which attempts to drive away, but the suspect clings to the vehicle.
"It's not something you see every day," says Garner, who says it reminded him of something out of a movie.
"I've been working there for 17 years and I've never seen any shenanigans like that man. That was absolutely insane. But I'll tell you it did brighten up a boring workday," he says.
