A woman ran into traffic and was hit by a car after an argument with her boyfriend, according to Phoenix police.

The woman and her boyfriend got into an argument inside their van just prior to the accident on Tuesday morning.

Both drivers of the vehicles stayed on scene and were cooperating with police.

Police said the woman has been downgraded and is expected to survive.

The northbound lanes on Cactus Road were shut down while police investigated the scene.

She is suspected for impairment, police said.
