(Scroll down for video) A drunk driver was arrested on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident after allegedly he was allegedly seen falling out of a moving truck and running over his own leg, according to police in Florida.

Orlando police said that they have arrested 28-year-old William Edwards, after his pickup truck slammed into a home, injuring a woman.

According to the police investigation, the incident unfolded around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday, outside the Dancer’s Royale strip club on East Colonial Drive.

Witnesses at the scene told police that Edwards seemed to be intoxicated when he left the club.

His friends asked him not to drive, and security guards at the club warned not to get into his vehicle, but he got in this truck anyway.

After driving several feet, the suspect fell out from the truck.

The truck then ran over his leg. The truck then rolled down the street, hit a ditch and crashed into a house. 58-year-old Barbara Hernandez was sleeping in a room when the truck slammed into her.

She was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life threatening. Edwards ran away from the scene and did not call police to report the crash.
