HOUSTON - A woman is dead after police said her boyfriend accidentally ran her over after an argument.

According to reports, the couple was driving down Banyan Street around 1 a.m. Saturday when they started fighting.

At one point, police said the driver stopped, and the victim tried to jump out of the truck as the man started driving again.

She got caught in her seat belt and fell partially out of the truck, which caused the driver to hit her, police said.  She died at the scene.

The boyfriend stopped and called 911.

Houston police said the couple had been drinking at the time of the accident, so the boyfriend may face charges.

The victim's identity was not immediately released.
