Man falls out of moving car, alcohol suspected

One was injured after falling out of the window of a moving vehicle in rural Sanilac County over the weekend.

It happened on Juhl near Applegate Road in Elmer Township. Authorities say the individual wasn’t wearing a seat belt and alcohol is suspected to be a factor.

He was taken to an area hospital and later transferred to a Flint Hospital for further treatment of undisclosed injures. Investigations are ongoing.
