A man who jumped from a car going about 30 mph on U.S. 1 Sunday was airlifted to Miami, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Troopers say Joel Enrique Cabrera, 26, of Hialeah Gardens, was a passenger in a northbound 2006 BMW driven by Janely Stephanie Sanchez, 26, of Hialeah, at Mile Marker 104.
"The driver and passenger had a verbal altercation and [Cabrera] asked [Sanchez] to pull over to exit the vehicle," an FHP press release states. "When [Sanchez] refused, [Cabrera] jumped from the vehicle while in motion at approximately 30 mph."
Cabrera suffered "severe head trauma" and was flown to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami.
Neither alcohol nor drugs were suspected to be factors in the incident, according to the press release.
No charges were expected to be filed in the case.
The crash occurred during a three-day run of multiple crashes, including a motorcycle wreck in which 18-year-old Phanupong Halak of West Palm Beach was killed early Monday after losing control at Mile Marker 106.
