Long Beach police said an 18-year-old woman was seriously injured after jumping out of a moving car on Highway 90 Tuesday, Aug. 13, around 6:30 p.m.
 
According to Long Beach Police Chief Wayne McDowell, the victim told police she did it because the driver 22-year-old Chasity Murphy of Gulfport was driving too fast and she was afraid.

Police learned of the incident after a witness told police a vehicle opened and a woman fell out on Highway 90 and Lange Avenue in Long Beach. The driver reportedly continued driving west bound on Highway 90 without stopping, McDowell added.
