Shreveport (KTBS) -  A very strange and disturbing scene Sunday afternoon at I-49 at Kings Highway.  There was an accident a little before 1 p.m. involving a naked man, and a KTBS 3 viewer recorded the scene just moments after the crash.
    The video is edited so it's appropriate for viewers.
    Authorities say that the naked man, Weston Ericson, 37, was speeding, North on I-49, when he crashed into the back of another vehicle with a couple inside.
    Ericon's vehicle flipped several times. He then got out his car and approached the vehicle he had just hit, and tried to physically assault the woman passenger, police say.
    Witnesses said that's when other commuters started stopping and were able to subdue Ericson. Officers arrived and eventually cuffed him. Ericson was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
    The man who was driving the other vehicle was taken to the hospital for injuries. The woman was not injured.  Police believe Ericson was impaired and will be facing charges.
