Woman injured falling out of vehicle

A Park Rapids woman was taken by ambulance to St. Joseph's Area Health Services Sunday after falling out of a moving van driven by her husband.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, Patrick Kaufenberg, 34, was westbound on Highway 34 near Casey's when "the couple got into a disagreement."

Patrick Kaufenberg turned left into the turn lane to get off the highway when Karrie Kaufenberg, 25, fell out of the passenger side of the couple's van onto the pavement.

The Patrol said Patrick Kaufenberg did not realize his wife's door was open at the time.

"It does not appear to have been intentional," the State Patrol report says.

Karrie Kaufenberg was taken by ambulance to the hospital with non-life threatening facial injuries.
