OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma City mother was killed after police said she was thrown from the hood of a vehicle.

Police say the hit-and-run happened on N.W. 26th, near Roff,  where neighbors are now startled.

"It leaves a scar on the community," Ronnie Lovell said. "It's just sad that something like this has happened.”

Officers say Sabrina Ewertz, 32, was killed during a fight with her wife, Chrysanthemum Ewertz, 29, who goes by Crystal.

According to investigators, Crystal was trying to leave in her vehicle when Sabrina jumped on the hood.

Crystal allegedly pushed on the gas and Sabrina was thrown to the pavement, where she died.

"I know that some people very close to them thinks that she may have did it on purpose. I know that there's other people who were very close to them that thinks that it was just a wrong place/wrong time type of deal,” Lovell said. “Either way, it shouldn't have happened.”

Police say Crystal left the scene, but eventually came back. She was arrested and taken to jail.

Crystal now faces a charge of first-degree murder and driving under the influence.

A neighbor told NewsChannel 4 Friday that he is not surprised the relationship ended with tragedy.

He said he heard the couple fight a number of times in the past.

"I don't keep count. It's pretty common. I mean go talk to all the other neighbors too. Everybody had heard it,” the neighbor said.

People who knew the couple said they had been together for several years.

Sabrina leaves behind a son.
