(SPENCER COUNTY, IN) - A southern Indiana man has died after he reportedly jumped from a moving truck during an argument with the driver.

Police say Kenneth Harper died Thursday near Dale, Indiana after jumping out of a pickup driven by David Gabberd.

They called a friend for help, put Harper in the back of that friend's truck and drove him to a home.

After he was unresponsive, they called 9-1-1.
