A New Jersey man is on the run after choking his girlfriend and running her over with his car repeatedly at a gas station Sunday, police said.

James Crudup, 44, of Toms River, is wanted for attempted murder.

Crudup and his girlfriend began arguing as they pulled into a Hess station on Route 37 after midnight, Toms River police said.

After getting out of his sports utility vehicle, Crudup threw his 35-year-old girlfriend to the ground and choked her, police said.

She ran toward the gas pumps as Crudup got back into his car, authorities said. He reversed his car and headed toward her.

A gas attendant tried to push her out of the way, but the girlfriend got trapped between the bumper and a pump.

Crudup pulled away as the woman fell to the ground, police said. He drove back and ran over the woman’s legs, authorities said.

He backed up and hit the woman with the vehicle for a third time, police said.

Crudup then fled westbound on Route 37 in his brown 2000 Dodge Durango, according to authorities.

His girlfriend, who police have not named, was taken to Jersey Shore Medical Center in Neptune with non-life threatening injuries.

The couple lives together in Toms River on the 700 block of Bay Ave., police said.

Police ask anyone with information on 5-foot-10 Crudup to call 911. He is also wanted on motor vehicle violations, police said. His bail has been set at $500,000.
