Driver run over by own truck during road rage

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – A man in Florida apparently got a dose of road rage karma when police said he was run over by his own pickup truck after getting out to bang on another driver’s window.

It happened Tuesday evening in Gainesville.

The Gainesville Sun (http://bit.ly/1rDishr) reported 48-year-old Joseph Carl had been drinking and 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 said 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 isn’t known whether he’s obtained a lawyer.
