Man falls out of car while trying to spit

Drool_Photo300A Pensacola man was critically injured after he fell out of a vehicle while trying to spit.

Miguel Rogelio, 37, was riding in a 2006 Lincoln on U.S. Highway 29 when he “quickly opened the right front door” to spit, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

When he did this he fell out of the moving vehicle and onto the roadway, hitting his head.

The driver of the car, Desiree C. Jamar, also of Pensacola, told the investigating trooper that they had just left the Tom Thumb store near the West Roberts Road intersection and that the car was traveling at about 45 miles per hour when Rogelio fell out.

Rogelio is being treated at West Florida Hospital.
