An Orlando, Florida man was arrested after leaving the scene of a crash after his truck smashed into a house. The suspect had been in a strip club and warned by security to not drive. Surveillance video showed the man getting into his truck and attempting to drive off when he fell out the driver’s side door, and the truck ran over his leg. The truck continued to head across the highway when it crashed into the house. The woman inside suffered injuries but was not taken to the hospital. Police were able to find the suspect because he left his license at the strip club.
It seems that stories like this should be on a TV show of bizarre accidents, but it does happen.
