Fairfax County Man Leaps Into Traffic After Rush Hour Accident on I-66

It started with a two vehicle accident on I-66 in the midst of a Monday evening rush hour. As commuters crept past exit 147, many noticed a Honda stopped on the right shoulder of the highway. Without warning, the Honda, driven by 21 year-old Corbin G. Shannon of Oakton, Virginia, swerved back onto the roadway, hitting a cargo van.

After the crash, the driver of the van hopped out to check on Shannon. At that point, Shannon allegedly ran from his vehicle and out into traffic. According to Virginia State Police, Shannon proceeded to jump onto four different westbound vehicles, breaking the window of the first car in the process.

By the time state troopers made it to the scene, Shannon was across to the left shoulder of I-66.

Taken to a local hospital after the incident, Shannon was charged with reckless driving, destruction of property, illegal pedestrian on the interstate and interfering with passing vehicles on the highway. Doctors at Fairfax Inova Hospital ruled out drugs and alcohol as causes of Shannon’s odd behavior.
