GAINESVILLE, Fla. - An intoxicated man was run over by his own pickup truck after he got into a road rage incident during a rainstorm, according to police.

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, and the truck rolled into Carl, police say. A police report says he was taken to the hospital where he was treated for fractures in his hand and foot.

Carl faces charges of DUI and DUI property damage.
