Man runs over, kills ex-girlfriend

Mississippi police say they jailed a man after he ran over and killed his ex-girlfriend with his vehicle in Jackson on July 18. Referring to it as a crime of passion, authorities say that they were initially called to the scene of an accident involving injuries. When they arrived, however, they realized much more was going on.

The incident happened near Northside Drive on Newman Avenue. Police filled the scene as investigators cordoned off the area. JPD officials described the situation as tragic for everyone involved. They are still in the early phases of the investigation, so authorities are unable to verify any domestic problems between the former couple.

However, a witness says that he heard a disturbance just before the 25-year-old woman died. Police acknowledged that they have evidence of a physical dispute going on inside the man's vehicle. The woman was allegedly pushed out, according to the evidence, so this suggests their argument became heated and violent. Additionally, the man turned himself in following the incident

It is reported that the pair had a child together. With the mother gone and the father in jail, the child may grow up without biological parents. Some friends and family of the deceased woman were too distressed to appear on camera. The family held a vigil to honor her.

Car accidents that involve pedestrians, whether or not they are intentional, frequently cause severe injuries or death. When injury-related deaths are involved, the surviving family members could be left with more than emotional scars. As they are coping with their loss, they may face unexpected costs such as funeral services. Surviving relatives of fatal car crashes might decide to file lawsuits against the at-fault parties to recover some of damages.
