Man fatally run over during argument with girlfriend.

A lovers' quarrel ended with a deadly accident in southeast Houston. It all started when a couple got into an argument in her car in the 5300 block of Selinsky at about 10pm Monday.

According to police, the woman stopped the car in a parking lot in an effort to calm her boyfriend, Jerry Bonner, down. When the vehicle was stopped, the woman told police Bonner got out and began verbally abusing her. He then got back into the vehicle and, leaving the passenger door open, reportedly began to physically assault her.

Bonner's girlfriend says she then tried to escape by driving away but he grabbed her, causing her to drive erratically. The vehicle went the wrong way on Selinsky and onto a grassy median. The vehicle then hit a bump, which caused Bonner to fall from the vehicle. Police say he was then accidentally run over by the vehicle. Bonner, 33, died at the scene.

This case will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.
