DEFUNIAK SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) - A 55-year-old Alabama woman has
been injured after she fell out of a motor home traveling on a Florida interstate while trying to use the bathroom.

The Florida Highway Patrol says Sharon Glover had been drinking when she fell out of the moving motor home near Pensacola on Tuesday.

She walked to the rear of the vehicle to use the restroom, fell and slid 100 feet on the pavement before landing in the grass. She was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Authorities said it's unclear if she opened the wrong door or leaned on the door.

The driver, Bonnie Rickett, noticed Glover had fallen out of the motor home and pulled over about a quarter mile from where Glover fell.

No charges are pending.

Rickett, Glover and another passenger are from Midland City, Ala.

    I am just reading this after nearly 4 months of recooperating from this accident and am insulted by WTVY's caption, but I quess headlines sell. Just to clarify, I bumped into the back door, it needed replacing and had been giving us problems, but because I was grieving the death of my oldest son, we took the chance of traveling to Bayou Labatre for a 3-day fishing and camping trip. Needless to say, we didn't make it. I would like to ask though, where is the compassion for a miracle survivor of such a horrendous experience? Thank you WTVY. But mostly, I want to thank those who commented with such love and support. I know I am loved and thank God, there are those, though few, who understand when a person is suffering enough already. I am still suffering from the skull fractures and wonder if I will ever drive again, but I keep reassuring myself that even if not, it is a small price to pay for being alive to enjoy my family, friends and grandbabies, if only for another day.
