Man jumps out of moving car window for cigarette

FOREMAN, ARK.--A 38-year-old Winthrop, Ark. man was hospitalized after jumping out the passenger window of a vehicle traveling an estimated 55 to 60 mph to retrieve his cigarette late Saturday, an official said.

Jeff Foran was riding in his friend's 2000 Dodge Stratus about 10 p.m. Saturday near the Arkansas-Oklahoma border when the cigarette he was smoking blew out the vehicle's front passenger window, said Arkansas State Police Trooper First Class Jamie Gravier.

Foran jumped out of the vehicle to retrieve the cigarette and hit the pavement, causing facial trauma.

The driver of the car, Jerry Glenn Nelson, 44, of Haworth, Okla., was asked by Foran earlier in the evening to be Foran's designated driver, Gravier said.

"Nelson said Foran was smoking a cigarette when it blew out the window and Foran jumped out the window to retrieve the cigarette. Nelson said he was driving between 55 and 60 mph when Foran jumped out," said Gravier.

Foran was lying on the pavement bleeding profusely from the nose, eyes and chin."He also had a substantial case of road rash" said Gravier. "It was obvious he was extremely intoxicated and this man was hurt."

No charges were filed and Gravier had no information Sunday afternoon on Foran's condition."If anything could make him stop smoking, this should be it. The man is lucky to be alive," said Gravier.

So, I'm sure everyone wants to know...was he able to retreive the cigerette?

""If anything could make him stop smoking, this should be it."

I find this funny. I doubt it'll make him stop smoking...it might make him think twice about jumping out of a moving car though...
