State Police from the Marienville station say the 55 year-old victim was a passenger in a vehicle traveling north on Route 36 shortly after 7:00 PM Tuesday evening.  For some reason, the passenger side door was opened, and the man fell out onto the highway.  Troopers estimate the vehicle was traveling at a speed of about 45 miles per hour at the time.

The man’s injuries were described as serious.

Meanwhile, police say the 43 year-old Cooksburg woman who was driving was arrested on the suspicion of D-U-I.
