A woman was airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital after falling out of a door-less Jeep Wrangler in Water Mill on Tuesday night.

Southampton Town Police said April Meise, 39, from Shoreham was a passenger in the 2017 Jeep being driven by Christopher Spoljaric, 35, of Shoreham, when she fell out of the Jeep, which was being driven near the White Fences Inn on Montauk Highway at 8:57 p.m.

Ms. Meise, police said, suffered a head injury and was transported by a Suffolk County Police medevac helicopter to Stony Brook University Hospital.

Police did not say what led to Ms. Meise falling out of the vehicle, but said an investigation revealed that Mr. Spoljaric was intoxicated.

Mr. Spoljaric was arrested and charged with misdemeanor DWI. He was taken to Town Police headquarters where he was processed and held for arraignment.
