CARROLL COUNTY, Md. — A woman was killed in Carroll County after police say she allegedly jumped out of a Ford F250 during an argument and was run over.

On Sunday at about 4:14 a.m., troopers from the Westminster Barrack responded to the area of MD RT 30 (Hanover Pike) just north of Mt Ventus Road Number 1 in Manchester, Carroll County.

The initial investigation indicates that the driver of a 2002 Ford F250 was in the area of Mt. Ventus Road, with 23-year-old Nicole Whitcomb as the front seat passenger.

According to police, during their travels, a verbal argument between the two began while the vehicle was in motion.

During the argument, it is alleged that Whitcomb opened the front passenger door and tried to get out of the vehicle while it was moving.

Based on physical evidence, Maryland State Patrol said it appears that Whitcomb was run over by the Ford F250 during the incident.

Medical personnel were called to the scene and took Whitcomb to Carroll Hospital Center, where she was pronounced dead.

Due to the nature of the incident, multiple resources responded to assist in the investigation, including the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit, Crime Lab, Criminal Investigation, Crash Team, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiners forensic investigator.

The investigation continues into the cause of the fatality, and at this time, no criminal or traffic charges have been issued.
