SC woman falls out of car on I-95, killed

YEMASSEE, S.C. -

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating why a passenger tumbled out of a moving car on Interstate 95 and died after landing in front of a tractor-trailer. 

Troopers say the fatal incident happened Sunday evening near the Jasper County community of Yemassee. Southbound traffic on I-95 was rerouted for almost three hours. 

Highway Patrol Sgt. Bob Beres says the female passenger was riding in a southbound 1993 Buick 4-door driven by a 58-year-old Savannah, Ga., man.

Beres says the unidentified female came out of the moving car and was struck and killed by a Freightliner tractor-trailer headed southbound in the next lane. 

The patrol didn't release the passenger's age and other information.
