Fargo man injured after fall from moving vehicle
FARGO – Police here are investigating an incident involving an 18-year-old Fargo man who fell or was pushed from a moving vehicle early Monday.
The incident was reported about 12:30 a.m. in the 4300 block of 9th Avenue South.
According to Police Lt. Joel Vettel:
The man was with friends at the Taco Bell restaurant at 42nd Street and 13th Avenue South when he left one car and got into another vehicle.
A short while later the man fell out of the vehicle while it was moving.
A truck driver who heard a scream and witnessed some of what happened told police it wasn’t clear whether the man fell or was pushed from the vehicle, Vettel said.
“There are a lot of unanswered questions,” Vettel said, adding that the man was treated at a local hospital for road rash and injuries to his head and arm.
