NORTH BEAVER TWP., Pennsylvania -

A child is said to be fine, after being thrown from a moving vehicle in North Beaver Township, Lawrence County on Tuesday afternoon. 

Pennsylvania State Police say shortly after 9 a.m., 24-year-old Ayla Bricker was driving a 2001 Dodge Dakota when she lost control of the truck. 

According to a release, the vehicle hit an embankment and a tree on State Route 108.  

Officials say a 5-year-old boy was sitting in the second row and was thrown out of the rear window of the truck during the incident.
