BEXAR COUNTY -- A mother was taken to the hospital after pushing her child out of the way of a speeding vehicle at a bus stop in southeast Bexar County.

Bexar County sheriff's deputies said the school bus was stopped and had its flashers activated in the 12700 block of Highway 181 on Friday morning.

The woman was helping her child onto the bus, deputies said, and saw the vehicle barreling down the road.

The vehicle tried to pass the bus on the right shoulder, deputies said, and would have hit the woman's child if she hadn't shoved the child out of the way.

The woman hit the vehicle's windshield and was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center with a broken arm and possible head injuries, deputies said.

It was not immediately clear what charges the driver will be facing.
