A 16-year-old Abbotsford girl is lucky she wasn't seriously hurt after falling out of a car while her boyfriend was doing "doughnuts" in a parking lot Monday night, say police.
The 18-year-old boyfriend was driving the family's 2003 Honda Civic with his girlfriend as a passenger when he decided to do some spins in a lot in the 32700 block of South Fraser Way around 10: 30 p.m., said Const. Ian MacDonald.
At one point, the girl was flung from the car.
A witness ran up to see if she was OK and offered to call an ambulance, but the driver said he'd transport her to the hospital.
The passerby called police anyway and APD officers located the couple and the car parked not far away.
The girlfriend was taken to the hospital where she was treated for minor cuts and injuries.
Police impounded the car for a week and ticketed the boyfriend for driving without due care and attention.
Now the teen will have to contend with the girl's father, who was furious when he heard about why his daughter was in hospital, said MacDonald.
"Suffice it to say, the father is not at all pleased with the boyfriend," he said, adding the girl could have died.
"The witness said she rolled over several parking stalls . . . imagine if he had driven over her?"
