Authorities in Durham confirmed to ABC11 that they got several calls reporting the incident around 4:30 a.m.

Our crew at the scene said it started when two women got into an altercation at the Colonial Grand at Research Park on Stone Lion Drive.

Police said the woman stayed on the hood of the SUV for 9 miles as it drove down the Durham Freeway onto I-40.

The driver, 23-year-old Shenique Ocean, finally stopped at the NC-54 exit for Leigh Farm Road.

Ocean appeared to try to explain what happened to police. From a distance, she could be heard saying "I don't even have my glasses. I couldn't see. I'm just trying to get away at this point."

No one was hurt.

Ocean was cited for careless and reckless driving and misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon.
