LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

On Wednesday, KCBD Newschannel 11 obtained dramatic dash cam video of an accident that shows a Lubbock Police officer saving a woman from serious injury or death. 

Early Monday morning police responded to a minor car accident on 19th and Memphis Avenue.  Officer Philip Standefer,26, was standing on the concrete median talking to a woman when a van smashes into his squad car.  Police say Peter Keltz, 23, was driving that van drunk and too fast.

The video shows Officer Standefer quickly jumping into action and pushing the woman out of way as the squad car comes flying toward them. The mangled squad car continues to hurl forward hitting another car and then nearly hitting a second police officer on the scene.

Officer Standefer suffered serious injuries, but has since been released from the hospital.  The woman got away with only a few scrapes and bruises.

Keltz was arrested that night and he is charged with DWI and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He remained behind bars on Wednesday with a $55,000 bond.
