Pregnant Texas woman dies after run over, baby saved

HOUSTON (AP) - Houston police say a pregnant woman has died after being run over by her husband's truck but doctors saved her nearly full-term baby.

Police say no charges were filed over Monday's accident. KPRC-TV (http://bit.ly/1Dc9Csz ) reports authorities say the baby was delivered at 36 weeks and was hospitalized in stable condition.

Police say the couple apparently argued over repairs for her car.

Investigator Rolando Saenz says the husband said he didn't have the money to get her car fixed. Saenz says the woman was holding on to the driver's door when her husband began to pull away.

Police say the woman slipped, fell and accidentally was run over by the truck. She died at a hospital, where doctors delivered her baby.

Further details on the family weren't immediately released.
