SAN ANTONIO – A woman is dead after she was run over by a pickup truck when walking on the roadway, and San Antonio police said her ex-husband may have been responsible.

The incident happened around 2:29 a.m. Saturday on Spur Valley Street and Haven Valley.

Officers were called to the area for a major accident and upon arrival, police found the victim, Dominga Estrada, 33, laying on the side of the roadway.
