SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Sioux Falls police say a man has died from his injuries after falling off the hood of his girlfriend’s car after an argument.

Authorities say the 46-year-old Sioux Falls man died around 11:30 a.m. Monday. Police say the man had an argument with his girlfriend and fell off the hood of her car as she drove away Saturday.

A passer-by found the man lying in the road.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens says the man was taken to a hospital, where doctors discovered a life-threatening brain bleed. Because the man’s family invoked their rights under Marsy’s Law, his name will not be released.

The Argus Leader reports the man’s girlfriend, a 43-year-old Sioux Falls woman, was arrested. The state attorney’s office will determine if she’ll face additional charges.
