OSCEOLA, Ind. - Police in northern Indiana say a woman was killed when she struck her head on something while vomiting out the passenger window of a moving minivan.

St. Joseph County crash team commander Tim Spencer tells WSBT-TV the 24-year-old woman was sitting on someone's lap in the front passenger seat about 4:40 a.m. Sunday when her head struck an unknown object in Osceola, about 10 miles east of South Bend. Spencer says the woman had been drinking.

Spencer says the minivan driver and another passenger fled, but police caught them.

Twenty-three-year-old Kyle Papa of Mishawaka is charged with driving while intoxicated resulting in death of another person, leaving the scene of an accident after driving while intoxicated causing serious bodily injury, driving without a license and two marijuana charges.

It was not immediately known if he had hired an attorney. He was being held Monday in the St. Joseph County Jail on $5,000 cash bond.
