SAN RAMON, Calif. (AP) — A driver has been arrested after authorities say he ran over his passenger twice after arguing with her on the side of a San Francisco Bay Area freeway.

The woman was transported to a hospital with serious injuries.

The Oakland Tribune reports (http://bayareane.ws/1yrC8D1 ) the California Highway Patrol arrested 22-year-old Washington Wiley Jr. of Sacramento following the Monday incident.

The car was traveling on Interstate 680 in San Ramon, a suburb east of San Francisco, when the argument started.

Authorities say the woman got out of the car, and the man drove into her. The driver then reversed the car and struck the woman again, backing over her.

The woman was pulled back into the vehicle, and it drove off. Officers used witness descriptions to track the car and arrest the man.
