Redington Beach, Florida - Pinellas County sheriff's deputies are investigating an incident in which a woman died after falling out of an electric car that she was riding in with her husband.
"I was having dinner with my family and then we heard someone yelling and we thought it was kids yelling at each other," said witness Alex Muccioli.
But what Muccioli heard was the victim's husband yelling hysterically just before 6 p.m. on Saturday.
The couple was traveling southbound on Gulf Boulevard in a 2002 Gem electric road vehicle. The driver, Larry Taylor, was making a left turn onto 162nd Avenue when his wife, 68-year-old Patricia Taylor, fell out of the vehicle.
"He was hunched over her. She wasn't moving. He was crying and yelling and a few other people started coming," said Muccioli.
Several neighbors tried performing CPR on Taylor, but it was too late. She passed away after suffering serious head injuries.
"To see someone die, I mean she was already gone when I got there. It was only minutes. I mean, maybe two or three minutes," said Claire Janccunski.
The Taylors were visiting Redington Beach from Doylestown, OH.
Patricia Taylor was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the incident.
Investigators are still trying to determine whether alcohol played a role in the accident.
