Police say 18-year-old Albino "A.J." Fernandes was pronounced dead at a hospital shortly after leaving the moving car at about 9:30 a.m. Thursday. Police did not say how fast the car was traveling.

A witness says a woman was seen cradling Fernandes and crying after the incident.

Fernandes had graduated from Falmouth High School last June where he was a captain of the football team. He had planned on enrolling at Cape Cod Community College.
