CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Corpus Christi Police Department responded to a call they received Tuesday at 3:57 p.m. at the 5800 block of Hampshire Road, where there was a woman trapped between a school bus and a car.

Lt. Chuck Freeman said the woman involved was getting her child from the school bus when her other child, left in the car, put the car into neutral and the car began to roll.

The woman then jumped into action and put herself between the bus and the car to stop it from hitting the handicap ramp, Freeman said.

The woman was taken to Christus Spohn Shoreline Hospital for her injuries, and there were no serious injuries to report from the incident.
