A man died Monday after jumping from a moving vehicle on Rosedale Highway following an argument with his wife, according to sheriff's officials. 

A woman called 911 about 7:20 a.m. to report her husband leapt from a vehicle near Superior Road, west of Bakersfield, sheriff's officials said. He died at the scene.

The man was a passenger in a car with his wife and children, and his death is being investigated as a probable suicide, sheriff's officials said. His name will later be released by the coroner's office.
