FORT WORTH, Texas — Updated at 9:40 a.m. with the woman's identity.

A 25-year-old woman died after she was hit on a freeway in Fort Worth overnight, police said.

Officers responded shortly before 3 a.m. to the crash scene on the 2700 block of West Freeway. The woman, identified as Ashlan Martin, was hit by a car after she had gotten out of the vehicle she was in and was standing on the freeway, police said.

Martin had been involved in what police described as a "rolling domestic disturbance" with her significant other as they were driving down the freeway. Then their vehicle crashed, and they both got out and continued to argue on the freeway. That's when a separate vehicle came by and hit Martin, according to police.

Detectives are investigating the deadly incident.
