ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

Two deputies and a trooper were being treated for chemical exposure Wednesday after authorities say a driver found dancing naked crashed into a wall while mixing chemicals.

According to Orange County Fire Rescue, the driver crashed into a wall Wednesday morning outside an apartment complex on Via Hacienda Circle in Orlando.

When officers arrived, they found a naked man dancing in front of the crashed vehicle. The driver told them he was "getting wet," or mixing formaldehyde and marijuana, when he crashed, a fire rescue spokesman said.

The deputies, trooper and driver were taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center.

Roads in the area are closed while hazmat crews and other officers clean up the chemicals and crash scene.

The driver is expected to face charges after treatment. He has not been identified.
