The fight between a boyfriend and girlfriend started at the Chulas Sports Bar in Houston at 1 a.m. Monday, but it didn’t end there, police told KTRK.
In the parking lot, the woman clipped an open door on her boyfriend’s truck as they departed in separate vehicles, according to KHOU.
The two later stopped on the Gulf Freeway, with one vehicle parked in a traffic lane, to get out and continue arguing, reported The Houston Chronicle.
After they got back into their vehicles, the 31-year-old man sideswiped his girlfriend’s car with his pickup truck, which struck a pole and rolled over, the publication reported. He was ejected from the truck and died of his injuries at the scene.
