So for those that were stuck near 190 and 75 yesterday

RICHARDSON, Texas (AP) -- A man pulled a woman from their Mercedes during a heated highway argument and pushed her off an overpass into rush-hour traffic before jumping about 80 feet to his own death.

The woman landed on the hood of a car, which carried her a short distance before she fell off and was hit by another vehicle, said Richardson police Sgt. Kevin Perlich. She died at the scene.

Witnesses told police the man and woman were seen arguing on the shoulder of the President George Bush Turnpike just north of Dallas, Perlich said.

The man did not die immediately after his jump, Perlich said. He was taken to a hospital where he later died.

The relationship between the two was not immediately known. Police did not release their identities.

Southbound traffic along a three-mile stretch of U.S. 75 was at a standstill as police investigated the scene.

Yes, I found this out when I went to meet with TrotFox, ShadowFox and TimberWolf yesterday, to get final plans on Ailuro's funeral. It had been cleared up by then, but there were still pole lamps under the overpass where the investigation was dwindling. TrotFox and I were stuck in this on 75 yesterday when I was trying to get him to work. Even on the DART he was still a half an hour late. Of course, TI understood. They also understood his 2-hour lunch for the information on Ailuro.

People are sick.
