MOOSE PASS (AP) -- An Anchorage man has been charged with reckless driving and four counts of assault after he ran into four vehicles on the Seward Highway on Friday, Alaska State Troopers said.
Charles Willcockson, 47, was arrested after his Mazda pickup crashed into Jerome Lake, near Moose Pass.
Troopers said Willcockson was southbound when he intentionally rammed another pickup and then rear-ended a car near the Hope cutoff.
Willcockson later sideswiped a car as he passed it on the right south of Summit Lake and then he passed a bus in a no-passing zone, troopers said. While passing another bus, he struck the front of the bus as he attempted to pull back into the lane.
Willcockson lost control, vaulted a guardrail, and rolled his pickup into the lake, troopers said.
He was found hiding in bushes. He did not appear to be seriously injured, troopers said, but he seemed to be highly delusional. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
