DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A 25-year-old Florida man is dead after getting out of a moving pickup truck.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office says Nicholas Hendershot was being driven home by a cousin and was nearly home when he got out of the moving Ford F-250 and fell onto the road.

The sheriff's office says the driver had picked up Hendershot from a bar late Saturday night to take him home.

Hendershot was transported to a hospital in DeLand, where he was pronounced dead.
