HARDINSBURG — A 39-year-old woman has been charged with reckless homicide in the death of her husband who was struck by a car along an Indiana highway after the couple argued and fought.

A preliminary investigation reveals the woman was driving east about 6 p.m. Friday on U.S. 150 just west of Hardinsburg in southern Indiana when she and her 45-year-old husband began to fight in the car, according to state police.

The car was driven into a ditch. The husband who was riding in the front passenger seat and one of two friends in the rear seat got out of the vehicle.

The woman drove back onto the highway, striking her husband, troopers said Saturday in a release. She then drove away leaving her husband and the passenger. The passenger was not hurt.

The second friend was in the car when the woman drove away. She was arrested about three hours later in Washington County.
