A Massachusetts woman died late Monday after she and her husband were hit by a pickup truck and the woman was dragged three miles to another town.

Police say the couple was hit about 10 p.m., outside of a motel where the two work in Wrentham, Mass. The truck continued down the highway until police stopped the vehicle and found the woman underneath it. Moses Acloque, 22, of Norwood, Mass., is being charged with leaving the scene of the accident and was expected to face a judge Tuesday, WCVB reports.

Authorities did not identify the deceased woman, pending notification of her family. Her husband suffered minor injuries.
