Laikyn Field, 16, leaped from her family’s moving car during an argument and died from head injuries.

Miss Field’s stepfather was driving the van with her mother also inside when the teenager became upset and jumped out from the van’s rear passenger side, according to police.

It appears Field was injured when she struck the pavement of a county road just north of Seymour.

She may also have been a victim of school bullying.

According to a post on the Columbuzz blog: ‘There was an unbearable amount of cyber bullying, and remarks about her on a daily basis.’
