Investigators say the 32-year-old Santa Maria woman drove off, but a witness followed her.

Police caught up with Espitia-Hernandez and arrested her in the 700 block of West El Camino. She was booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail on two felony counts.

Ramirez and her daughter were taken to Marian Regional Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.
