A 28-year-old woman from Georgia reportedly died after she was arrested but fell out of a police car while she was being transported to the sheriff’s office.

The deceased was identified as Brianna Marie Grier of Sparta, Georgia. The incident happened on July 15 when the woman was taken into the custody of the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office by deputies.

Authorities responded to the home of Grier at the time in Hickory Grove Church Road, a statement from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation read.

"Grier was arrested at the home," the statement from the GBI said. "While deputies were taking Grier to the Hancock County Sheriff's Office, Grier fell out of a patrol car and sustained significant injuries."

Further details remain scarce as of this writing. It was not mentioned if Grier was handcuffed at the time. It was not also mentioned how fast the patrol car was traveling.

Grier died on Thursday at the Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta at around 1:00 p.m. due to the injuries she sustained from the fall.

"Hancock County Sheriff Terrell Primus asked the GBI's regional investigate office in Milledgeville to investigate on July 15 following the initial incident," the Georgia Bureau of Investigation stated.

An investigation into the case of Grier is ongoing. Authorities also added that an autopsy is set to be made on the body by the GBI Crime Lab.

In an updated report by WMAZ, it was learned that the mother of the deceased, Mary, sought help from authorities because the mother of two was having a schizophrenic episode.

“If I had known that it was going to turn out like this, God knows I wouldn't have called them to come and get her," Mary said.

It was added by the father of Grier that the 28-year-old said she had been drinking. Police allegedly took her into custody overnight until she could receive proper medical attention, NBC News reported.
