Reacting to a verbal altercation among passengers riding in the unnamed man’s suburban, he pulled over on the shoulder of the freeway, stepped out of the vehicle and then ran into traffic. Along with the man, three adults and three children were passengers of the suburban which was headed to Santa Maria.

The driver of the SUV was arrested for driving under the influence. He has not been identified.
