Shock as hubby jumps to death from truck 'to escape nagging wife'

30 April 2016, 13:43

Hesperia – A 33 year old woman in Hesperia, United States, has been charged for drunk driving, after her husband Donald Pider, 34, jumped to death from a truck they were driving in.

According to Mirror, Cristy Pider was so fed up with the argument the two were having that he decided to throw himself from the vehicle.

The couple were reportedly coming from a party when the incident occurred. The problem started when the husband wanted to return to the party but the wife, who was driving, refused, prompting the husband to jump from the vehicle. 

Cristy told the police she was shocked when her husband leapt to his death.
She was released on a $3 500 personal recognizance bond and was due for a pretrial hearing on 10 May, with the prosecutor saying the husband’s jump from the truck was “an independent thing not resulting from her drunkenness.” It was “unforeseeable”.
