An Owasso man is dead after jumping out of a SUV while giving a driving lesson Sunday afternoon.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the incident happened just before 4:30 p.m. on a rural road in southern Washington County.

Troopers say 30-year-old Lei Yang was instructing a woman on how to drive, when the two got into a verbal argument. Moments later, the OHP says Yang jumped out of the Chevy Traverse as it was headed west on County road 3900 just east of Vera and he hit his head.

Troopers say Yang was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 31-year-old driver, Shuang Xue and another passenger, 2-year-old Vincent Yang were not injured.
