ALBUQUERQUE -- Bernalillo County sheriff's deputies are looking for a white truck and its driver who allegedly ran over a man after a spat of road rage Tuesday afternoon.

BCSO says the driver in the white truck got into an argument with another man, driving a black Ford truck, on Coors Boulevard near Arenal. Both drivers pulled into the parking lot of a Blake's Lotaburger, where the two men got into a verbal argument.

The man in the white truck then rammed the black truck as it was turning around to leave. The driver of the black truck got out of his vehicle to confront the man driving the white truck, and the driver began to drive off as the man was still holding on to his window frame.

The man eventually lost his grip and was allegedly run over by the white truck, according to BCSO.

Deputies say they are looking for two men who were in the white truck, described as Hispanic males between 5'5" and 5'8" and 120 to 140 pounds. The white truck in question is a late-model Chevrolet or GMC 1500 single cab with custom wheels. BCSO says the truck should have left front-end damage after ramming into the other truck.
