A woman sitting in the passenger seat rolled out of a vehicle as it made a turn at the intersection of Lower Fayetteville Road and Shenandoah Boulevard Tuesday. 


A woman fell out of a vehicle while it was in motion Tuesday and was transported to Piedmont Newnan Hospital with minor injuries.

Around 12:30 p.m., personnel with the Coweta County Fire Department were dispatched to the intersection of Lower Fayetteville Road and Shenandoah Boulevard in reference to a female passenger who had fallen and rolled out of a vehicle. According to Assistant Fire Chief Mitch Coggin, apparently the vehicle was making a left turn onto Shenandoah Boulevard, the passenger’s side door somehow opened and the female passenger rolled out.
