A Chicago teen was killed in a gruesome altercation that ended in an SUV ramming her to death.

Tatyanna Lewis, 18, was killed when a woman repeatedly rammed her into a tree on Friday night. She has been identified as the daughter of a Chicago police officer, according an NBC affiliate.

Lewis and a 24-year-old woman, Chynna Stapleton, were in a heated verbal argument. Then, Stapleton got into her SUV and chased Lewis down the sidewalk. The woman crashed into the teen, repeatedly striking her against a tree before fleeing, authorities stated. Lewis was pronounced dead at the scene.

Brittany Patrick lives nearby the crime scene and witnessed the killing. “As soon as I looked out my window I saw a girl being rammed into the tree, and ran over and backed over and over again,” Patrick said. “She hit my car, backing over the body and then backed back over the body and got away.”

Neighbors said the argument was over a man.

Stapleton has been charged with murder, according to the Chicago Tribune. She is also accused of hitting several other cars after killing Lewis.
