Police: Ohio woman falls off car hood, is run over

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland police say a former national boxing champion died after she jumped onto the hood of a car driving toward her after an altercation, then fell off and was accidentally run over by a different vehicle.

Police say 26-year-old Cashmere Jackson died after an altercation Wednesday at a gas station.

Police say Jackson exited the car she was riding in after another car bumped it. When the second car drove toward Jackson, she jumped onto the hood.

Police say the driver pulled onto a busy street with Jackson on the hood, and she fell off just before the vehicle collided with a car. Jackson was accidentally hit by another vehicle.

Jackson won light welterweight titles in 2010 and 2011. Records show she later spent two years in prison for robbery.
