SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Carefree Highway west of Scottsdale Road was shut down for several hours Tuesday morning after the driver of a white Chevy Blazer crashed into two vehicles and assaulted residents.

Police have identified the driver as Mark Bradley Webb, 32, a Prescott resident.

“His behavior indicates he's on some sort of a drug or stimulant,” said Scottsdale police Sgt. Mark Clark.

Police said the Blazer first hit a Chrysler, which sent it head-on into a BMW SUV. Then, the Blazer struck a BMW coupe and actually went up on top of it.

"There was air bag deployment, there was a lot of damage here,” Clark said.

Police said the driver did doughnuts and smashed through a neighbor's wall before crashing, but he didn't stop there.

“Our officers got here and they did take the driver into custody for assaulting two residents and a firefighter, as well,” Clark said.

The suspect reportedly jumped on the firefighter's back.

Four people, including the driver who caused the mess, went to a nearby hospital in serious condition. All are expected to recover. Once the driver of the Chevy is OK, police said he will face numerous criminal charges.
