A woman was seriously injured when she seems to have exited through a passenger-side window of a moving vehicle on a Massachusetts highway early Sunday, according to Massachusetts State Police.

The driver of the car, 25-year-old Joseph Monsini, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. He was taken to the State Police Barracks in Foxborough. It's unclear whether he's represented by an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

State Police said the woman, a 26-year-old Taunton, Massachusetts resident, was found by police in the roadway with serious injuries. She was taken to Rhode Island Hospital and is expected to survive.

Police said an investigation is ongoing.
