    Is everything correct in this passage?

    Hello,

    Is everything correct in this passage?

    On a cold Autumn evening, a car appeared in the middle of the street. Then it stopped suddenly. A hand threw a bag out of the car right on the pavement.

    Thanks

    Yes, it's OK.
    Consider using 'onto/into' when there is movement, and 'on/in' when there is not.
    "After the bag was thrown onto the pavement, the bag is on the pavement."
    But in this case, "right on the pavement" sounds OK.

    You don't need a capital letter at the beginning of "autumn".
