19-Year-Old Hospitalized After Jumping From Car on I-880 in San Jose

A teenage girl who jumped from a moving car on southbound Interstate Highway 880 in San Jose Saturday afternoon was hospitalized with extensive lacerations, the California Highway Patrol said.

The 19-year-old girl was a passenger in a 2004 Toyota Corolla driven by her 54-year-old father on I-880 north of the Montague Expressway around 1 p.m., according to the CHP.

The girl undid her safety belt and jumped out despite her father's attempt to stop her, the CHP said. Both are San Jose residents.

The car was traveling around 60 mph when she jumped out, and she sustained lacerations over most of her body, the CHP said.

She was taken to Valley Memorial Hospital for injuries and a psychological evaluation.
