A Chouteau man is in serious condition. Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the man hit a mailbox while hanging out of a moving car. It happened just east of Wagoner around 8 p.m. Wednesday night. 

According to the highway patrol, a man was driving down a county road when his passenger, 23 year old Brandon Roger, started getting sick. The passenger leaned out of the window and that's when he was hit by a steel mailbox. The driver stayed with Rogers until an ambulance arrived to take him to the hospital.

In the words of the great Majarishi: Always carry a litter bag in your car. If it gets full you can always throw it out.

Bgjk #: ~]] Never said the passenger was at fault. But I bet popo would cite the passenger for a seatbelt violation. I merely wanted to emphasize how it might be a good idea for the driver to stop so that he/she could better accommodate his/her friend (?) with the sudden need to heave. Aside from making a mess all over the passenger side now the driver can deal with the reality that he hurt his/her friend (?) and possibly damaged him permanently.

Would you be worried about a "seatbelt" violation if you were puking out the window? maybe the driver should have stopped but the passenger was not at fault.

Weeellllllllll isn't that nice. After banging his head into a mail box the driver stayed there with him until an ambulance arrived. Is it lawful to have an individual sticking their head out of the window to puke ??? Probably not, sounds like a seatbelt violation.
