An accident initially described as a hit-and-run involving a pedestrian turned out to be a woman who was seriously injured after she leapt, fell or was pushed out of her boyfriend's car.
The 35-year-old woman, whose name was not released, had been drinking with her boyfriend in a bar on Northgate Boulevard.
After leaving the bar, they were in a car on Northgate near San Juan Road when the woman left the car in an unknown fashion.
The boyfriend, 25-year-old Brian Galvan, reportedly drove on before returning to the scene and answering questions from police.
The woman was transported to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Galvan was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
