Florida man run over by own truck during road rage incident
A man in Florida apparently got a dose of road rage karma when police say he was run over by his own pickup truck after getting out to bang on another driver's window.So, let's recap. Idiot drives drunk. Drunk Idiot fails to see that traffic has stopped for a red light and plows into a car stopped at the red light. Drunk Idiot then gets out of his truck and attempts to assault the person he hit. Person he hit very wisely elects to GTFO. Since Drunk Idiot failed to put his vehicle in Park, it runs his drunk ass over.
The Gainesville Sun reports 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 says he was taken to the hospital where he was treated for fractures in his hand and foot.
I can't tell if it was the hand of G-d that put his truck in gear, or if the truck had simply had too much of its idiot owner and took things into its own gears. It's also hard to qualify this as a "road rage" incident, too - it's possible he was just trying to exchange papers and, given his inebriated state, unable to properly modulate his attempt. I know a bunch of folks who can't control their volume when under the influence, that sort of thing.
With that said, getting run over by your own vehicle because you're too drunk to put it in park is just priceless...
That is all.
