A woman was rushed to the hospital Wednesday morning after being struck by an 18-wheeler in southwest Houston.

Witnesses say a couple had left a Burger King near Roark and Murphy Road around 10:30 a.m. and were walking across the street when a big rig hit the woman.

The truck driver was making a turn and did not see the couple in the street, and did not know anyone was struck.

The woman's boyfriend started running after the truck and beat on the door saying "You hit my girlfriend," according to witnesses.

The woman was then transported to Ben Taub Hospital. Her condition was not known.
