A speeding pickup rear-ended a woman’s sedan on the South Side on Friday morning and sheriff’s officials say the driver said it was Jesus’ will because the other motorist was not â€œdriving like a Christian.â€
The bizarre incident that shut down southbound U.S. 281 above the Medina River happened about 7:25 a.m.
â€œHe just said God said she wasn’t driving right, and she needed to be taken off the road,â€ said Lt. Kyle Coleman of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.
The driver of the pickup was identified in a Sheriff’s Office news release as Michael E. Schwab, 52, of Blooming Grove.
Schwab told first responders at the scene that â€œthe other vehicle was not driving like a Christian and it was Jesus’ will for him to punish the car,â€ according to the release.
And it sounds like the officer on the scene agrees!
â€œGod must have been with them, ’cause any other time, the severity of this crash, it would have been a fatal,â€ Coleman said.
