Woman falls from moving vehicle
Shortsville, N.Y. - A young woman from Ontario County is recovering after being thrown off of a vehicle and hitting her head on a roadway.
Ontario County Sheriff's deputies said that Brittany Covert, 19, climbed onto the hood of a vehicle owned by her boyfriend, 18-year-old Colby Cuthbertson. They said that Cuthbertson backed out of the driveway with Covert still on the hood and traveled northbound on County Road 28.
During the trip, deputies said that Cuthbertson turned left into a driveway to avoid a car approaching from the rear, causing Covert to fall from the vehicle and hit her head on the pavement.
Covert was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital to undergo CAT scans in the critical care emergency department and be treated for a possible fractured skull, broken nose and other dental injuries.
Cuthbertson was cited for permitting clinging to a motor vehicle.
