BAYTOWN,T.X.-- A Texas mother ran over a man after he tried attacking her and her children.
The mother's two kids had been waiting in the family's van while their mom ran into the Baytown CVS.

Medical personnel airlifted Martinez to the hospital. He is currenly suffering from severe back injuries.
Although Martinez cut the mother with a knife across her chest, he did not injure the children. Officials expect the mother to be all right.
