An incident resulting from a dispute has led to a man being thrown from the hood of a moving car Wednesday night near Shelbyville.
We received a report that a passenger car driven by 17-year old Yancey Flores of Shelbyville was traveling down County Road 2571 in the McClelland Community just after 8 p.m., with another male subject, 27-year old Matthew Trevino holding onto the hood of the car, when Flores left the roadway at a high-rate of speed, striking a culvert at the McClelland Church, throwing Trevino from the vehicle.
Residents tell us the two men had gotten into an argument at a residence, and Flores got behind the wheel of the vehicle, and was driving off, when Trevino jumped onto the hood.
Trevino also reportedly struck the windshield numerous times with his fist—breaking it in the process.
Trevino received emergency treatment at the scene from ACE EMS, and was life-flighted from the Shelbyville ISD campus to University Health in Shreveport with a reported compound fracture to his leg.
His current condition is not known.
Flores was cited by DPS Trooper Jade LaVergne for no driver’s license and unsafe speed.
