PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland police say 27-year-old man is due to be arraigned Monday after he ran over a woman who got out of his car following a bar fight.

Officers say the pair sped off after a large fight at the White Eagle bar, but they only made it about a block before the vehicle went up on the sidewalk and crashed into a post.

Police say the woman got out of the car, and the man put the car in reverse, striking the 29-year-old woman with the open passenger door. She suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital. The car also ran over another man’s foot.

The driver, identified as Avery Camacho, was detained and assaulted by several witnesses. He was booked into jail on charges of assault, driving under the influence, reckless endangerment and reckless driving. Police say he could face other charges depending on the woman’s medical condition.
