Map: Carjacking suspect involved in multi-vehicle collision
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Scottsdale police have a suspect in custody after a carjacking that led to a multi-vehicle collision.
John Brigham, 45, was involved in a collision at Hayden Road and Via de Ventura in Scottsdale Friday afternoon, according to Scottsdale police spokesman Sgt. Mark Clark. After the crash, Brigham was reportedly yelling and chanting as he removed all his clothes and then jumped on the roof of another vehicle.
Clark said Brigham then pulled the female driver out of a Toyota Prius and fled in the vehicle.
As he fled the scene in the Prius, Brigham was involved in another collision involving four more vehicles at the intersection of Shea Boulevard and 90th Street. Police said Brigham may have been traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes.
Clark said Brigham tried to carjack two more cars before he was apprehended and taken into custody by Scottsdale police.
"The violence and the damage that was caused indicates that it was pretty high speeds involved," Clark said.
One of the people at the first accident scene was transported to a hospital in serious condition. A pregnant woman at the second scene was taken to a hospital and is also listed in serious condition.
