Three people were arrested Saturday night in Laurel County after a 25-year-old woman riding in the car with them jumped out and was struck by an oncoming car.
Carrie Price Martin of Corbin was flown to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital in Lexington with serious injuries, the Laurel County sheriff's office said Sunday.
Arrested were her husband, Chad Martin; her mother-in-law, Rhonda Clouse, who was driving the Toyota Camry; and Timothy Lloyd Ayres, another passenger.
Authorities said Chad Martin, 28, was charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place, second-degree disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and third-degree terroristic threatening.

The sheriff's office said he apparently got in the way of paramedics at the scene, cursing and creating a disturbance. It also said he briefly scuffled with arresting deputies Larry Parrott and Kyle Gray.
Clouse, 47, was charged with second-offense driving under the influence, second-degree disorderly conduct, and failure to maintain insurance.
Arresting officers also said she was loud and unruly.
Ayres, 40, was charged with public alcohol intoxication and on an outstanding Bell County bench warrant of arrest for failure to appear in court.
All three were being held in the Laurel County jail.
The incident happened about 10:55 p.m. Saturday on U.S. 25, about 8 miles south of London.
The sheriff's office said Carrie Martin had tried to jump out of the moving car, and when her mother-in-law pulled off the road, Martin jumped out.
She ran into the middle of the road and was struck by a southbound Suzuki Forenza driven by Jessica Manning of Corbin, the office said.
Authorities said a disagreement had occurred in the car between the woman and her husband before she jumped out of the vehicle.
