Man jumps out of moving car after argument with girlfriend


A 25-year-old man is in a coma after jumping out of a moving car while on a highway in Ibaraki Prefecture.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 1 a.m. Friday on National Route 294 in Shimotsuma. Fuji TV reported that the man was in the back seat of a car being driven by his 27-year-old girlfriend.

The woman told police they were having an argument when her boyfriend said, "I'm getting out," opened the door and jumped out. The car was moving at about 40 kilometers per hour.

The man hit his head and has been unconscious since the incident, police said.

What a self-pitying idiot! No doubt he is expecting his girlfriend to visit him in hospital with the hope of gaining her pity. Hopefully, he will grow a pair while he is on a coma or, his girlfriend will see him for loser he is and dump his donkey!

Well he showed her!

Well it looks like the NEMA, and re-education camps will be coming here soon.

The woman told police they were having an argument when her boyfriend said, “I’m getting out,” opened the door and jumped out.

let's hope she is telling the truth and she is not a muscular woman.

Wow, she must've really pressed his buttons (and women know how to, oh yes they do). This guy woulda' been better off dumping her and moving on to a new girlfriend.

Did exactly the same when I was young and foolish. Now I'm old and foolish, and I probably couldn't make it out of the door.

Injured young male pride does strange things....

Yep to the last 2 comments. Some women really are good at finding those buttons and then pushing them until they get a reaction. I know the urge to throw myself off a cliff or out of a car well. Thankfully I've grown out of it as well.

dude was in the backseat while she was driving?

It would be interesting to hear the conversation leading up to the incident. At least it happened at 1 AM, and not during rush hour, then the dude would be dead.

Wonder how girlfriend feels about this incident...

1 am, he's in the back seat... did she pick up a drunken boyfriend or they went out and he had a few too many and she was pissed off? Why else would he lack to sense to step out of a moving car?

Leaping from cars during arguments already...Just wait til he gets married.

@CrazyJoe Not to make light of the current state of the young man... but CrazyJoe, your comment is hilarious!!!

why is he in the backseat while his girlfriend is driving?

I assume he won the argument because he got to say the last words.

Not unknown for people in a distracted state of mind (and arguing with a woman can be VERY distracting as they will continue the argument well beyond the point of reasoning!) to do such things. A well-known English playwright years ago on a moving commuter train suddenly closed up his briefcase, got up, opened the door, stepped out - and died! No woman involved though, or at least not on the train!

to me the silver lining in this story is that he wasn't driving. imagine if he was driving and decided to step out of the moving car. could've been a lot worse story

Sometimes these chicks can put you at wit's end with their hard heads. Only thing you can do is kiss and make up or get out. This is the safe and legal approach...

I have wanted to do that - more than once.

I saw a documentary about male/female fights. Apparently, there's some kind of chemical in the brain which gradually pacifies you when you're angry. In women, it's released about three times slower than in men. So a bloke will take ten minutes to calm down after a fight, but the woman needs thirty minutes. That twenty-minute period in between is when this kind of stuff happens. The bloke wants to forgive and make up, but the woman's still furious.

It's nobody's fault, just chemicals in the brain.

It is unfortunate that arguments have become part and parcel in lives of friends. Most of us fall in love, but fails to rise in love. No one is permanent and no problem is without solution. No one knows why we should argue, fight and separate.

LoL, check his cellphone inside & out. Never been "cheated on" sounds like. . . . . So proud to say us "guys" never push those buttons nor commence that "drama".

Actually, it all comes down to the shape of their skulls...

There are no credible studies that support your belief that "chemicals in the brain' --> longer cool down times for women.

No one knows why we should argue, fight and separate. actually its been proven that healthy relationships are ones that have arguments (not violent) and make up, compared to those where there are none. my wife and I have some strong arguments, but we make it habit of making up and not let the bad feelings stew for too long.

Well, on the positive side, it's better than him hitting his G.F. ! ;)

I blame the woman. You creatures nag-nag-nag.

Dumb. Just plain dumb.

Every time I think I've heard the stupidest thing ever, something like this comes along to top it. I'm only surprised it didn't occur in Saitama. And what the heck was this moron doing in the back seat? Was this his girlfriend or his driver?

Can't feel sorry as he did it to himself. She should leave him after he recovers. Impulsive and poor decision maker.

Ugh. A very similar incident happened to my friend back home. She and her boyfriend were having a massive argument in the car. He was in the driver's seat, and she kept trying to open the door to jump out. In trying to stop her, he lost control of the wheel and crashed into a barrier. He was killed, she survived. She was 19 years old at the time.

I've met one or two women whose insanity would make you want to put a gun in your mouth

Marvelous to read all the declarations of empathy with a guy who walked out of a moving automobileg because he was upset with his girlfriend.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Perhaps he was in the back seat against his will and jumped to escape from her! I would think we would want to push the person upsetting us out of the car...

To those above who actually defend the dope who jumped out of a moving car:

You are trying to explain away that man's stupid action as if the woman was responsible. You try to do this by saying women can be a pain in the rump, nag, bla bla bla.

Two things about that:

First, women are grrrrrreeeat.

Second: The loser, nagging ladies you've chosen to be part of your life are loser, nagging ladies because you are the ones choosing those loser, nagging, gold diggers. You are looser.

So stop your trash talking about women. This is personal. You're talking about my mother, my sister, my wife wife, and my daughters. All strong, independent women who would never, I repeat never, go on one date with loser women-fearing men like you.,
