Athens-Clarke County police said they were investigating the circumstances which led to a Madison County woman receiving serious injuries when she jumped from a moving vehicle early Sunday morning.
After being found unconscious and bleeding on Hull Road shortly after midnight, 30-year-old Yessica Zarco Rebollar was taken by ambulance to Piedmont Athens Regional Center, according to police.
“The best information we have at the present time is that the female jumped out of a moving vehicle,” Athens-Clarke County police Public Information Officer Geof Gilland said Monday morning.
“ACCPD is investigating the situation which led to the female jumping from the moving vehicle,” he said.
Rebollar lived with her husband on Old Elberton Road in Hull, according to a police incident report.
Police said they were notified at 12:19 a.m. Sunday by a woman who was driving in the area when she saw the victim lying face-down on Hull Road near its intersection with Harve Mathis Road, bleeding from the head and lower back.
The witness and her passenger assisted the victim by moving clothing away from her airway and holding up her head to keep Rebollar from being asphyxiated by blood, police said.
While police officers were on the scene, they were approached by two men who identified themselves as the victim’s brothers.
The said that they had received a call from someone who asked if their sister was with them at a Harve Mathis Road residence with them, according to police.
When the caller was told that Rebollar was not there, “the caller informed them that she may be lying down in the roadway on Hull Road, police said.
Police said they learned that Rebollar had been with her husband and sister and other family membersn at a party being held at the Harve Mathis Road residence, “and when they noticed Yessica was gone they did not know when she left or who she left with,” police said.
One of the victim’s brothers reportedly told police that his sister had not argued with anyone at the party, nor did she appear to be upset.
He would not provide police with information about the person who called to notify him about his sister, according to police.
