SAN ANTONIO, Nov. 28 (UPI) -- The driver of a pickup that struck a woman's car in Texas Friday said he thinks God told him to drive in excess of 100 mph to hit the car, police said.
The incident near San Antonio, Texas, shut down southbound U.S. Highway 281 above the Medina River, the San Antonio Express-News reported.
"He just said God said she wasn't driving right, and she needed to be taken off the road," said Bexar County Sheriff's Lt. Kyle Coleman.
The woman was driving northbound when the man's pickup rear-ended her vehicle. The pickup's driver told deputies that he was driving in excess of 100 mph at the time, police said.
"God must have been with them, 'cause any other time, the severity of this crash, it would have been a fatal," Coleman said.
The woman was transported to a hospital as a precaution; the pickup driver was taken for psychiatric evaluation.
