    A minor crash in West Hartford led to a bizarre incident in Hartford where police subdued a naked man they said was under the influence of PCP and marijuana.

    West Hartford police said there was a minor crash in town and the driver fled the scene, then got into another crash near the 7-Eleven just over the line in Hartford.

    Hartford police said they were called to a man accident on Park Street and Amity Street. On their way to the scene, police were informed that a tan Nissan Altima fled. The driver that was struck in a gray Toyota Corolla was transported to the hospital for minor injuries.

    The Nissan then reportedly crashed into a fence at the 7-Eleven on 2120 Park Street.

    The driver, Najee M. Amatur-Rahim, then got out of the car, took off all his clothes and started dancing on the hood of the vehicle, Hartford police said. 

    Hartford police said the man was under the influence and possessed PCP and marijuana.

    Amatur-Rahim had two narcotics warrants out for his arrest from New Britain. He was transported to Hartford Hospital for evaluation and treatment for minor injuries.

    The suspect will face numerous motor vehicle and narcotics charges in Hartford following Friday's incident.
