COLUMBIA — A man accused of driving over his ex-girlfriend in Columbia has surrendered.

Columbia police said the man turned himself in Friday.

He is accused of rear-ending his ex-girlfriend's car on Thanksgiving morning and then punching and kicking her when she got out of her vehicle.

Police said he also drove his vehicle over her and dragged her down the street by her hair.

When a passing motorist stopped to call police, the suspect allegedly struck the witness's vehicle. The woman was able to get into the witness's vehicle and was driven to a nearby gas station.

Police and medical personnel met them at the gas station, and the woman was taken to a hospital.

Police said in a news release that they were grateful to the witness.
