SOUTH HAVEN — A 27-year-old South Haven woman remains in a Kalamazoo hospital after she jumped out of a moving vehicle on Monday evening in Geneva Township, police said.
Emily Murk was flown by helicopter to Borgess Hospital following the incident, which was reported around 9 p.m.
According to a report from the Michigan State Police, Murk was in the rear passenger side of a vehicle that was traveling west on Eighth Avenue near CR 687 when she jumped out and sustained serious injuries.
As of Tuesday, she was listed in stable condition at Borgess.
“The woman who jumped was upset and decided to voluntarily jump out of the vehicle causing significant injuries,” said Lt. Ryan Schoonveld, assistant commander of the Michigan State Police Paw Paw post.
As of Tuesday, Schoonveld said police do not yet know how fast the vehicle was traveling, or whether Murk was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
“We don’t have much information for release at this time,” he said. “It is believed, at this point, to be a family-related matter and does not appear to be criminal.”
