In case you missed it, a naked Chagrin Falls man was the cause of a multi-car accident on I-71 last night that left several commuters injured and hundreds more completely bewildered after the man fled his overturned vehicle on foot, and ran for more than a mile in his birthday best before being captured by police.

WCPO's John Genovese was on the story yesterday evening and has the details:



The naked man, Tracy Martin, 44, of Chagrin Falls, Ohio sped down the left-hand shoulder in his 1994 GMC pickup truck, sideswiped four cars and rear-ended a fifth, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol. Then, troopers said, Martin's truck hit the median, flipped and slammed into a sixth vehicle.

After his truck stopped Martin got out of the wreckage and took off running.

What happened next? Well, it was all caught on camera by a WCPO viewer. Watch the clip and read the full story right here.
