A woman in her 70s was badly injured when she fell out of a moving antique pickup truck in Baltimore County Sunday morning near the Pennsylvania border, police said.

Details of how the woman fell out of the 1949 black Chevrolet pickup were not available, and Baltimore County police were investigating the matter but it has not been determined whether charges will be filed, Lt. Rob McCullough, a police spokesman, said.

The woman was flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center as a precaution, but her condition was stable and she was able to answer questions from detectives, McCullough said. Her leg was injured, he said.

The woman fell out of the truck in the 21600 Block of York Road in a small community called Maryland Line about 11:20 a.m., and nearly in front of a volunteer fire station. The woman, who was born in 1936 but not otherwise identified, is the wife of the owner of the truck, McCullough said.

Police did not have details on how fast the truck was moving.
