    U.S. marshals are searching for a man who fled police in Washington, D.C., and crashed into another car in Maryland.

    Victor Charles Johnson, who also uses the alias Victor Jackson, is wanted for a parole violation, according to the U.S. Marshals Service. The Capital Area Regional Task Force saw him in D.C., but he fled police.

    Johnson was driving erratically on U.S. Route 50 when he struck another car from behind near the Baltimore-Washington Parkway split, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.

    Johnson continued on the BW Parkway, exiting toward Prince George’s Hospital Center in Cheverly, where he crashed and fled on foot into the woods, the U.S. Marshals Service said.

    Schools in the area were locked down, and residents were told to stay inside.

    Officers from the Prince George’s County Police Department and the Metropolitan Police Department are assisting in the search.

    Johnson is 6-feet-2 inches tall and weighs 180 pounds. He was wearing a gray New Balance shirt, blue sweatpants and a jean jacket.

    He has a history of drug and weapons offenses.

    Anyone with information about Johnson's whereabouts should contact the U.S. Marshals Service at 1-800-336-0102 or through the U.S. Marshals tips app.
