34-year-old Kenneth Amaya Jr. from California died in a car crash shortly after running over his wife.
Amaya Jr. and his wife were arguing outside of their GMC Yukon after pulling over to the side of the road. Shortly after, Amaya jumped back into the SUV and drove away, running over his wife in the process.
She was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition with extensive injuries but was able to tell police who had run her over.
Police believed Amaya had attempted to kill his wife and immediately began searching for him.
They didn’t have to search for too long, and he didn’t put up much of a fight, as he was found dead off of Interstate 15.
The California Highway Patrol says Amaya was speeding down the interstate when he lost control of the vehicle. He veered to the right and crashed into a metal guardrail.
It continued through the barrier and went rolling down a steep embankment.
Amaya was not wearing a seat belt and suffered fatal injuries after being ejected from the vehicle.
Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. No one else was injured in the accident.
