The 23-year-old Toms River resident was stopped on Route 571 just before 11 p.m. Thursday when a man opened the driver's door, grabbed the woman and attempted to yank her out, officials said.
 
The woman fought the man off and drove away. 
 
The Asbury Park Press reports the woman suffered injuries to her neck and knuckles.
