A Longview man died early Saturday morning after troopers say he fell from the window of a moving vehicle.

“Alcohol is believed to be involved,” said Trooper Brant Smith with the Texas Highway Patrol.

Joshua Whitten, 19, was hanging out of the left rear passenger window of a silver BMW traveling at 60 mph when he fell to the pavement about 5 a.m., according to Trooper Smith.

The vehicle was westbound on West Harrison Road, and was just east of Cupit Road when the incident occurred.

Whitten was pronounced dead at Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview.
