Gilham then got out of the truck.

The driver of the pickup truck - later identified as Floyd - pulled forward, ran over Gilham, and then left the scene, according to MHP.

Gilham was taken to a hospital where she later died from her injuries.

Floyd was booked into the Flathead County Detention Center on Wednesday, October 18, and charged with felony negligent homicide.

He made his initial appearance in court on Thursday and his arraignment has been set for November 2.
