MIAMI - A woman fell out of a moving car Saturday morning on Interstate 95 and another driver ran her over, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. 

After a night of drinking at Blue Martini in Miami's Brickell neighborhood, a witness said that her friend opened the back door of a black Honda Civic and jumped out, according to FHP Lt. Alex Camacho. 

Investigators have yet to determine the cause of the fall, which happened about 6 a.m. on I-95's northbound lanes near Miami's Little Haiti.  

"We believe alcohol may have been a contributing factor, but cannot confirm at this time," Camacho said. 

Investigators are considering the sinister possiblity that the woman fell, after she was pushed out of the Honda Civic. Camacho said the woman was at Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center Saturday afternoon in critical condition.

A woman was arrested after a false report, Camacho said. Miami-Dade Police Department officers are assisting FHP investigators.

Detectives are asking anyone with information about the incident to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 1-866-471-8477.

This is a developing story.
