ELYRIA — A woman fell from a moving vehicle near Chestnut Commons on Tuesday afternoon.

The woman’s name and condition were unknown Tuesday night. She was taken to University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center.

The woman was a passenger in a Jeep Liberty that was traveling northwest on U.S. Route 20, said Elyria police Sgt. Aaron Vargo.

Witnesses told police that there was an argument with the driver of the Jeep, which led to the passenger-side door opening while the vehicle was in motion, Vargo said. The incident remains under investigation.

Elyria police arrived on scene at 3 p.m.

Vargo said that police will issue a statement when the investigation is concluded.
