SAGUENAY, Que. — A 20-year-old man faces charges for hitting his girlfriend with his car during an argument.

Police say the couple began arguing inside a McDonald's on Thursday morning in Saguenay, Que., about 200 km north of Quebec City.

The man left the restaurant a few minutes later and got behind the wheel of his vehicle.

His girlfriend, also 20, then walked out of the restaurant with a friend, say police.

The woman was then struck by the car and her body ricocheted off the windshield, which shattered from the force of impact.

She suffered major injuries and was transported to the hospital. The woman is expected to recover.

Police arrested a suspect, who was scheduled to be arraigned on charges later Thursday.
