It was determined that just before the incident the driver of the Kia was giving the man a ride when she started driving dangerously and allegedly assaulted him.  He had jumped out due to fears for his own safety.

Officers found the driver in Mitchell a short time later and arrested her.

The 39-year-old has been charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and assault.
