A man has been charged after a woman allegedly fell from the vehicle he was driving – suffering life-threatening injuries – along a major Melbourne freeway.
Victoria Police allege the woman came out of a Honda sedan which was travelling south on the Princes Freeway at Little River, just outside Melbourne, at 11.30am on Sunday.

The Tarneit woman, 30, was flown to hospital with serious injuries and is still fighting for her life.
Officers spoke with the driver, a 28-year-old man also from Tarneit, who allegedly stopped at the scene.
Outbound traffic along the Melbourne-bound lanes of the freeway were delayed for hours while officers advised drivers to avoid the stretch of road by using Ballan Road and Geelong-Bacchus Marsh Road.
A Victoria Police spokeswoman said the man has been charged with breaching a court order following the Little River incident and briefly faced Sunshine Magistrates Court on Monday.
He was also charged with criminal damage relating to a separate incident.
The investigation into this incident remains ongoing, the spokeswoman said.
