Kevin Bolton (43) of Hattiesburg, fled into a nearby patch of woods after the crash. Prior to crashing, several people reported seeing Bolton driving erratically through the Town of Pearl River and on I-12.
Police later located Bolton in the Belair Subdivision wearing nothing but his underwear. Bolton alleges that he had to strip off his clothes because snakes were crawling up his pants. Bolton, who authorities believe was under the influence of some type of narcotic, was booked into the Slidell City Jail on charges of careless operation of a motor vehicle and hit and run. Additional charges may be filed as the investigation is still on going.
