MERRITT ISLAND - Authorities say a man accidentally ran over his wife after a drunken argument over who should drive near Cape Canaveral.

Florida state troopers say Richard Zubowicz thought his wife, Becky, too drunk to drive. So they pulled into a grocery store parking lot to argue Thursday.

Richard Zubowicz allegedly pushed his wife to the ground, circled the parking lot in his sport utility vehicle and ran her over when he returned to where they had been fighting.

Becky Zubowicz was found still pinned beneath the SUV. She was in critical condition Friday.
