A woman fell out of a car on FM 917 on early Sunday morning and was hit by at least one vehicle.

At approximately 1:14 a.m., Mansfield officers were dispatched to approximately the 800 block of FM 917 to a major auto/pedestrian accident.

The mother of the victim said she was driving her 21-year-old daughter home due to her daughter possibly being too intoxicated to drive herself home. The mom stated she was traveling on FM 917 when her daughter fell out of her vehicle and may have been struck by at least one vehicle from the traffic in the lane behind her. Since there were other vehicles on the roadway directly behind her, so she did not immediately stop. The caller stated she turned around, making her way back to where her daughter fell out of the car and contacted 911.

Upon arrival, Mansfield officers observed the victim was unconscious, but breathing with what appeared to be major injuries. No other vehicles were on the scene. Mansfield officers and EMS conducted life-saving efforts.

The victim was ultimately transported via CareFlight to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth.

The Mansfield PD Accident Investigations unit responded to the scene to further investigate. No arrests were made on the scene.

As of 6:30 a.m. Sunday, the victim was in stable condition, receiving ongoing care for her injuries.

The investigation is ongoing. If anyone witnessed this accident, please contact Ofc. Casey Knowles at
