A bizarre wreck on Savannah's West Side, and the story just keeps getting odder.

Three people were taken to Memorial University Medical Center after a three-car wreck on West Bay Street near Carolan Street on Tuesday night. Witnesses said the man who caused it all was yelling exposing himself at the scene. On Thursday, WTOC found that man at his home on Patch Street.

"I really flipped out cause, cause of the accident really," Christopher Robinson said of his odd behavior.

A witness' cell phone video of the moments after the wreck show Robinson writhing on the ground and screaming.

"It was just a mind thing," Robinson said. "I thought I was really dead, to tell you the truth."

Police say Robinson caused the wreck.

Witnesses said he was speeding, that he was driving more than 100 miles an hour when he hit a black Nissan Altima driven by Antoinette Cooper, a 39-year-old Savannah woman, slamming it into a Cadillac with 46-year-old Pembroke resident Shelton Hills behind the wheel.

At first, metro police said Cooper was pulling out of Nancy's Seafood when it all happened. They later said she was pulling into the lot.

Now, Robinson is blaming her for the wreck. Witnesses said they thought he was on drugs, an assertion Robinson denies.

"They took my blood, and I still have my license," he said. "I wasn't under any type of influence."

Robinson says he was driving about 35 or 40 miles an hour when he hit Cooper's car.

Cooper, Hills and Robinson all were treated at released from Memorial.
