A tragedy unfolded on Jones Road at Fallbrook Drive overnight

Deputies said a woman was driving and her passenger became paranoid. Investigators said the man was on meth and jumped from the car on Jones Road near Fallbrook Road in northwest Harris County.

After he hit the ground, deputies say the man was hit by three different cars.

He died here at the scene.

One of the drivers stayed. The other two took off.

Jones was closed down for some time due to the fatal accident. While it was closed, another driver hit a deputy's car.

"Just south of the scene, we had two patrol cars that were blocking Jones Road. A white male driving a white Honda Civic struck one of the patrol cars in the side of the car," said Sergeant S. Wolverton with the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

The deputy was not inside of his patrol car at the time and was not hurt.

Deputies believe the driver of the civic was intoxicated. He was checked out here for DWI.
