BEIRUT: Six people, five from the same family, were injured Monday after jumping out a moving car on the main highway linking Beirut with the southern city of Sidon.
A security source told The Daily Star that five were members of the Sibline family, and identified a sixth woman as Samar al-Abed. They suffered multiple injuries ranging from bruises to fractures.
They had panicked after they saw smoke coming out of the dashboard and decided to jump out of the car, the sources said.
The car eventually caught alight.
