GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Police say an intoxicated man was run over by his own pickup truck after he got into a road rage incident during a rainstorm.
The incident happened Tuesday evening in Gainesville.
The Gainesville Sun reports 48-year-old Joseph Carl drove into a vehicle stopped at a red light. He got out of his truck without putting it in park and began banging on the window of a woman's car. When the frightened woman drove away, there was nothing holding his truck in place.
The truck rolled into Carl. A police report says he was taken to the hospital where he was treated for fractures in his hand and foot.
He's charged with DUI and DUI property damage. It wasn't known whether he's obtained a lawyer.
