A drunk driver is dead after falling out of his car while driving, police in North Carolina said.

Wake Forest Police said that 24-year-old Carl Wilson Stancil of 825 Wait Avenue, was driving drunk and recklessly in a parking lot before he was thrown from the vehicle early on Monday morning.

Stancil was under the influence of alcohol and driving his jeep through the parking lot of the Carolina Ale House restaurant on North Park Drive around 2:30 a.m., when he lost control, hit a curb and was ejected.

The vehicle had no doors.

Stancil was run over by his own Jeep after falling out of the vehicle. The car continued to drive through the parking lot until one of the four passengers in the car hit the brakes.

Billy Damien Cromartie, 35, who sat in the back seat of the vehicle, was seriously injured. Stancil was taken to WakeMed, where he was pronounced dead.
