The 29-year-old woman who was dragged by a car Sunday morning in Boston died later that night, Boston police have confirmed. Authorities identified the woman as Cusandra Webb of Dorchester.
Officers were called to the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Pompeii Street around 3:55 a.m. Sunday for a report of a pedestrian accident.
Webb was found suffering from life-threatening injuries when police arrived on scene. She was rushed to Boston Medical Center, where she died later Sunday night, Boston police said. "The operator of the vehicle remained on scene. It was later learned that the operator of the vehicle and
the victim knew each other and had been traveling together in the same vehicle prior to the accident," police said. "Additional information indicates the victim had exited the vehicle and was injured when the operator drove off as victim was attempting to re-enter the vehicle."
The driver, Brianna Smith, 26, of Boston, was arrested and charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Police continue to investigate the death and more charges could be filed.
Police said four women were arguing outside a diner in the South End before the dragging.
