Correct call?

Runner on 2nd base when batted ball hit to the shortstop. While fielding the ground ball and with clear control of the ball, the runner runs into the SS and knocks her over and makes her unable to throw to first for the additional out. Could the BU award the 2nd out for the SS getting knocked down and not being able to continue to make a play at first. The runner made no attempt to go around the SS. Was a dangerous play because the SS was in a fielding position and unable to protect herself.
