Authorities investigating Alpine incident: Woman injured after falling out of moving truck

ALPINE, Calif. - A woman who somehow fell out of a moving truck in Alpine on Sunday is not expected to survive her injuries, and sheriff's homicide detectives were investigating.

Shortly before 3 a.m., the woman and a man who identified himself as her boyfriend were in a truck traveling along Willows Road near Via La Mancha when she exited the vehicle while it was still moving, sheriff's Lt. Glenn

She fell into the roadway and sustained major head trauma, Giannantonio said.

The man placed the woman back into the truck and drove her to Sharp Grossmont Hospital, according to the lieutenant. She was subsequently transferred to Sharp Memorial Hospital and is not expected to survive, he said.

The man remained at the hospital and was interviewed by investigators, Giannantonio said.
