Woman escapes out window of her own moving vehicle

KELOWNA – A Kelowna woman had to jump from her own moving vehicle Thursday morning after the man she allowed to drive decided he wasn’t going to stop.

Sgt. Wade Seversen says the woman, 32, alleges she let the man drive her pickup to a residence in Kelowna with her as a passenger. When he refused to stop Seversen says she crawled out through the passenger window.

The vehicle was travelling approximately 30 km/h on Hwy. 33 when the woman hit the road.

“She sustained bruises and scrapes, which did not require medical attention,” Severson says. The incident happened around 9:30 a.m.

The 47-year-old suspect from Grand Forks was last seen driving the blue 2005 Chevrolet Blazer east on Hwy. 33.

The investigation is ongoing but police are asking anyone who sees a blue Blazer with B.C. licence plate 678 RFN to call local police or Crime Stoppers.
