SHARE Woman dies after man throws her off overpass

RICHARDSON, Texas (AP) — A woman who was pulled from a car during a roadside argument and thrown to her death from an 85-foot overpass was "fighting like hell" to save herself, a witness said. Her assailant also died.

The 21-year-old woman fell onto the hood of a car on the freeway below, then was dragged several yards Thursday before being hit by another vehicle, said Richardson police Sgt. Kevin Perlich. She died at the scene.

The man, who jumped from the overpass after throwing the woman off, died later at a hospital.
