BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. - A toddler fell out of a moving car Thursday morning in Brevard County, according to authorities.

The car was traveling along Americana Boulevard in Palm Bay when the 3-year-old fell face first onto the road.

The woman who was driving said the door swung open while the car was moving.

However, the toddler was not in a car seat at the time of the incident.

"Well, she's 3 years old, and I don't have a car seat in here. I'm only babysitting," said the woman who did not want to be identified.

Authorities said the child is OK and walked away with minor injuries.
