A 21-year-old woman is in intensive care after falling from a moving car in Christchurch.

The other car occupants took the woman to Christchurch Hospital, where she remains in a serious condition. 

Lester said alcohol was suspected in the incident.

The driver had been spoken to by police, but no charges had been laid at this stage, he said.
