A 27-year-old woman died after being struck and dragged under a vehicle Wednesday evening in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

A 28-year-old woman, whose identity is known to investigators, was involved in an argument at 5:06 p.m. in the 300 block of North Latrobe when she got into a vehicle and struck multiple people as she drove off, Chicago Police said.

The 27-year-old was taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where she died, according to police and Chicago Fire Media.

No one else sought medical treatment after the crash, authorities said. The driver was not in custody Wednesday night.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not confirmed the death.
