SABINE PARISH, LOUISIANA — A man is charged with Vehicular Homicide after his girlfriend jumped out of his moving truck during an argument and the rear tires ran over her, according to the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies arrested Freddie Shawn Terrell, 41, of Pleasant Hill on charges linked to the incident.
The Sabine County Sheriff’s Office says shortly after midnight Friday. The Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office Dispatch received a 911 call from Terrell, stating he ran over a woman on Emanuel Church Road just north of Terrell Road.
Deputies arrived on the scene and found a 2008 white Dodge flatbed dually truck parked in the road. Deputies discovered Samantha Renee Pool, 23, of Robeline, lying partially in the ditch and roadway. Terrell was beside her. Deputies initiated life-saving procedures on Pool until an EMS unit arrived. Pool later died at Sabine Medical Center.
Terrell told investigators he and Pool had been drinking and got into a verbal argument. Terrell said Pool opened the front passenger door and jumped out. Terrell said his right rear tires ran over Pool before he could stop.
Detectives obtained breath, blood, and urine samples from Terrell as evidence in the case. Terrell was impaired at the time of his arrest.
A judge ordered an autopsy on Pool.
Terrell was booked into the Sabine Parish Detention Center for Vehicular Homicide.
