GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The Florida Highway patrol says a woman was dragged on a Florida highway while holding onto the door of a truck before she lost her grip. Investigators say the woman was run over by the same car and died.

Troopers arrested the woman's boyfriend early Sunday and charged him with leaving the scene of a crash that resulted in death.

Troopers say 44-year-old Ryan Le Boss was driving the Ford pickup truck on Interstate 75 near Gainesville, Florida, on Saturday. Officials say the girlfriend was 48-year-old Eileen Bocca, and she died at a nearby hospital.
