Two people were run over by a car on the A10 towards Schiphol on Sunday night around midnight. A woman was killed and a man was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, AD reports.

According to the newspaper, the woman and man were quarreling and got out of their car on the emergency lane between Amsterdam Oud-Zuid and De Nieuwe Meer.
