    We live in the South, so some of us may have a Southern accent, but would you consider saying "goodbye" to "howdy, y'all"?

ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) - A family is searching for answers after a teenage girl died during an unusual incident over the weekend. It happened early Saturday as a group of friends were leaving a Dallas nightclub. Police said that 17-year-old Lelys Leyva fell from the window of a moving SUV and was then struck by that vehicle.

Friends and family members said that the group of friends — including Leyva and her boyfriend — were driving home when the couple began to argue in the backseat. Police said that the victim made her way out of the moving vehicle, but fell and hit her head before being run over by that SUV.

The Arlington Police Department has spoken with the driver of the SUV — who had originally left the scene — along with the boyfriend and other people who were inside of the vehicle. Authorities are continuing to investigate the situation, including whether or not alcohol played a factor in this incident.

Leyva was a junior at Arlington High School until February. District spokeswoman Leslie Johnston said that the girl dropped out of classes, but returned less than two weeks ago. She had been participating in the district’s drop-out prevention program at another campus. “I’m not sure of the circumstances of why she left, but she did come back to try to regain that credit and continue on with her education,” Johnston said.

Friends have started a memorial for Leyva along Cooper Street, near Park Row. Many former classmates from Arlington High School stopped by the memorial on Monday morning to mourn the girl’s death. “I had a couple classes with her and she was always very loving,” said friend Angel Gonzalez. “She always made us smile. She was a good person.”
