NAVARRE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a Texas woman died after falling off the side of an SUV in Florida.

The Northwest Florida Daily News reports that Jeanette Martinez fell to the road and was possibly struck by another vehicle in Navarre early Sunday morning.

Florida Highway Patrol says Martinez and another woman were riding on the exterior of the SUV as it crossed the Navarre Beach Causeway when Martinez apparently lost her grip.

Troopers say the driver, Pedro Martinez Jr., and both women were under the influence of alcohol. All three were visiting from Houston.

FHP says Pedro Martinez has been charged with DUI causing serious bodily injury or death. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
