SACRAMENTO, California (WABC) -- A rider in California is telling the story of her terrifying Lyft ride.
She says she was scared for her life when her driver had a mental breakdown behind the wheel.
Christie Gomez says while on the freeway - the driver took his hands off the wheel and started swerving.
She says he was screaming "I can't do this anymore!"
Gomez convinced him to pull over to a nearby mall so she could use the bathroom.

Officers say when they arrived the driver locked himself in a gas station bathroom and tried to bite them.
He was taken into custody and is undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.
