A man was transported to hospital with minor injuries after reportedly falling out of a moving vehicle.
According to Peel police, officers were called to the scene of a vehicular incident in the Steeles Ave. W. and Chinguacousy Road area earlier this morning.
Peel Police Const. Bancroft Wright told inbrampton.com that some type of disturbance occurred inside the vehicle that prompted the passenger to exit the car while it was still in motion.
Wright says it is not yet clear if the victim was pushed or exited the car willingly.
