The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Kansas, Oklahoma woman was killed after she jumped out of a moving truck Wednesday evening in rural Delaware County.

Troopers say the truck was northbound on a county road when Linda Vaughan, 58, jumped out. The OHP says the truck was moving at 15 to 20 miles per hour and that the woman was run over by the truck's dual wheels.  

Troopers say Vaughan was arguing with the driver, 56-year-old David Vaughan, when she jumped out.

The OHP says both Vaughans smelled of alcohol.

A second passenger was not hurt.
