A 23-year-old woman died after she was run over by two monster truck tires in the parking lot of a Northwest Dallas strip club early Thursday morning.

Police said Kasey McKenzie was run over by two passenger-side tires while leaving the Spearmint Rhino just before 2:30 a.m. McKenzie, who friends said was at the club with three people for a night of fun, died instantly.

Investigators said 23-year-old Eric Crutchfield (pictured, right)apparently never saw McKenzie when he pulled out of his parking spot. Police said the size of the truck limits visibility.

"Detectives are still trying to determine the legality of the vehicle to operate in a public street," Senior Cpl. Gerry Monreal said.

Witnesses told police they had to stop him from leaving after he ran over McKenzie.

Crutchfield told police he had no idea he had run anyone over.

He was arrested on suspicion of intoxication manslaughter.

McKenzie was a graduate of Granbury High School and the University of North Texas.
