A passenger fell out the window of a moving car while it was driving down a southeastern Minnesota highway Saturday, according to the State Patrol's incident report.

Three people were in the car driving north on Highway 52 in Fillmore County, just southeast of Chatfield, around 5:30 p.m. when a woman fell out the window, the State Patrol said.

Saralyn Squillace, 23, of Rochester, suffered non-life threatening injuries in the incident, the patrol said. She was taken to a Rochester hospital.

Officials told the Star Tribune all three passengers in the car had been drinking, but they don't know who was behind the wheel. State Patrol Lt. Brian Buck told the newspaper that the other passengers "have been less than forthcoming" about the incident.

The identities of the other two in the car haven't been released, but the Star Tribune is reporting they included a 24-year-old woman from Racine, Minnesota, and a 21-year-old man from Rochester.

State police are expected to release more information Tuesday, according to the incident report. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the patrol at 1-507-285-7410.
