A 21-year-old Summerside man landed in the hospital early Wednesday morning after he fell out of a moving vehicle.

RCMP said the man was a passenger in a van coming home from a beach party in Chelton, between Summerside and Borden. Police said he opened the van door to throw away a beer bottle and fell onto the road.

He suffered major injuries to his feet and head and remains in hospital. RCMP said he wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

The incident is under investigation and charges may be laid.
