A Walker woman is in critical condition after she jumped from a moving vehicle on I-12. Captain John Sharp with Walker Police says last night 26-year-old Whitney Cotton was riding with her fiancé, 27-year-old Matthew Roberts, when she leapt out of the pickup truck.
“Apparently as they were getting on the interstate westbound I-12 at Walker, the couple was arguing, and Miss Cotton jumped out of the moving vehicle,” Sharp said.
Sharp says no foul play is suspected in this incident. He says Cotton was taken to a local hospital with critical injuries.
“She struck her head on the roadway in the fall from the truck and suffered serious head injuries,” Sharp said.
Sharp says detectives are looking into the matter. He asks that anyone who saw the incident to contact police.
“Several motorists stopped to render assistance but left before officers arrived. So we feel like there’s probably some people who saw the accident occur, and we’d like to talk to them,” Sharp said.
