Mother of 3 dies after vomiting out of moving minivan, striking her head


Amanda Ezra was reportedly sitting on the front passenger’s lap and puking out the window when her skull was bashed against an unknown object at 4:40 a.m. on an Osceola street. The driver tried to run, cops said, but he was caught.

An Indiana mom of three was killed early Sunday morning after vomiting out of a moving minivan and hitting her head.

Amanda Ezra was reportedly puking out of the front passenger’s seat window as the vehicle drove down an Osceola street at 4:40 a.m. when her skull was bashed against an unknown object, WSBT reported.

The 24-year-old, from Mishawaka — who’d recently enrolled at Ivy Tech in a bid to become a teacher — was declared dead soon after.


  Cops claimed the driver and one of the other three passengers ran away soon after the horrible crash — but were later caught.

The driver, who’s not been named but is in his 20s and also from Mishawaka, was then arrested for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, causing serious bodily injury and leaving the scene of an accident.

  St. Joseph County’s Fatal Alcohol Crash Team investigators believe Ezra, who’d been drinking, was sitting on the front seat passenger’s lap when the incident occurred.

Neighbors who live near the crash site described her death as “tragic.”

“You’ve got a 24-year-old child you’ve raised to be a young adult and has their whole life ahead of them,” Michelle Lyman told WSBT.“And it’s snuffed out because of a decision that was made and because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
