Kenneth Lewis: Texas police officer jumps off bridge to avoid drunk driving suspect

Investigators in Texas say an elementary school teacher caused a crash that forced a police officer to jump off a bridge.

The video shows Missouri City, Texas, police officer Kenneth Lewis forced to make the jump to save his life.

When Lewis hears tires screeching and sees what's coming toward him, he jumps 30 feet off the bridge to save himself.

Lewis survived and is expected to recover.

Investigators said the driver was drunk at the time.

The driver, Christie Diane Biggers, works at Scanlon Oaks Elementary school in Missouri City as a physical education teacher.

Biggers is charged with intoxication assault.

Her attorney said she wants to apologize to Lewis' family.
