CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The naked man accused of causing a six-vehicle pileup on Interstate 71 appeared before a judge on Tuesday.

Tracy Martin, 44, entered a guilty plea to three counts aggravated vehicular assault and two counts of vehicular assault in connection with the Aug. 5 incident.

Martin was high on marijuana and the hallucinogen PCP when he side-swiped four vehicles and struck two more as he sped through the left shoulder of I-71 South, according to Julie Wilson, spokesperson with the Hamilton County Prosecutor's office.

His pickup truck struck the concrete median and overturned before the nude man fled his truck and took a jog down the interstate.

Several witnesses called 911 as Martin, of Chagrini Falls, ran several miles down the interstate before being tackled by a group of officers.

Several people suffered serious injuries in the crash.

Martin will be sentenced on May 19.
