A 28-year-old North Baltimore woman died yesterday evening at an area hospital of multiple injuries after her body became wedged between the passenger's window of a pickup truck and a telephone pole, police said.

Police said Patrice Marable, of the 1100 block of Gleneagle Road near Chinquapin Parkway, was in her home and arguing with her boyfriend about 5 p.m. when the man left the house and got into his pickup truck.

Police said Marable ran after the man and was leaning into the vehicle's open passenger window to retrieve her cell phone when the man drove off.

Police said when the vehicle moved forward, Marable was wedged between the window and a pole it struck. Police said when Marable's body fell to the pavement, the boyfriend drove off and was being sought.

Marable was taken by a city Fire Department ambulance to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Traffic police are investigating. The boyfriend has not been charged.
