Florida Woman Found Safe After Falling From Moving SUV

A woman has been found safe in Hillsborough County after authorities say she was seen on surveillance video falling from a moving SUV.

Hillsborough County sheriff's officials said in a Tuesday release that the 21-year-old woman had suffered road rash. Police officials said she did not seek medical attention. She told investigators that she fell out after leaning against a previously damaged door.

The woman had been riding with her boyfriend, his sister, and the sister's 1-year-old son. They told authorities they had just left a nearby Walmart. 

The Monday afternoon incident took place near the University of South Florida in Tampa. In the surveillance footage, the woman appeared to be unconscious after the fall, which prompted police to search for her.

Detectives have categorized the case as an accidental injury. No charges are expected.
