A driver accused of intentionally running over a group of people after a fight outside a popular north Harris County dance hall Saturday morning, killing one woman and injuring three other people, was charged with murder.

It happened around 2:30am at Big Texas Dance Hall & Saloon on the North Freeway near Holzwarth in Spring.

"It was reported that somebody had been run over; several people run over. At this point, we have one deceased; three injured," HCSO Sgt. Felipe Rivera said.

Harris County Sheriff's Office deputies said a confrontation erupted in the parking lot. Tito Estrada Juarez allegedly jumped into a black pickup truck and drove into four people. He then fled the scene.

One woman -- identified as Alexandra Rodriguez, 20 -- died at the scene. Paramedics loaded up three other victims -- a man and two women -- and took them to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

"From what we understand, nothing happened inside the dance hall. It happened outside, the confrontation between two parties," Rivera said.

Juarez, 20, is charged with murder.
