A fight between a man and woman Saturday morning in north Harris County ended with the woman dead.

Harris County Precinct 4 Constable's Office deputies were the first to arrive on scene, followed by Harris County Sheriff's Office deputies, accident investigators and the district attorney's office. All of them are assisting and conducting their own investigations.

Deputies say a 27-year-old woman was trying to stop a man from leaving when she jumped onto his Jeep and then fell off the hood as he drove away.

The woman suffered severe head trauma. She was taken by Life Flight to Memorial Hermann Hospital where she died.

There is no word on whether this was an accident. Deputies tell us they are still working to determine what exactly happened, but they have detained a man in his 30s who they say was driving the Jeep that struck the woman.

We have a crew at the scene working to gather more information. Please stay with Eyewitness News and abc13.com for updates.
