A kidnapped woman was seriously injured when she jumped out of an 18-wheeler traveling down a Texas interstate Wednesday night as she attempted to escape her captors.

The unidentified woman had been abducted in El Paso by at least three men whom police believe intended to use the woman for sex trafficking purposes. The woman survived her jump and was able to place the emergency call to police who responded and transported her to receive medical treatment.

"It is reported that another female was in the truck and may be in grave danger," police said.

According to investigators, the truck was green with a white stripe, and was pulling a "white box type trailer."
