CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) - Police in San Diego County have arrested a man they say climbed out of his moving car, which crashed and injured a woman riding on top.
A Carlsbad police statement says 29-year-old Neil Tillman was trying a stunt called "ghost riding," in which a driver exits and then re-enters a moving car.
Investigators contend that Tillman got out of his rented car at about 4 a.m. Monday while his wife and a friend were on top.
Police say the driverless vehicle hit a parked car and the friend fell off and struck her head. She was hospitalized but her condition wasn't immediately released.
Tillman was arrested for investigation of driving under the influence and his wife was arrested for investigation of public intoxication.
