Elizabeth, Colo. - Christina Jahnz says she was driving in the parking lot of Elizabeth Middle School and glanced down at her phone to double check a message. When she looked up, her Honda was crashing into a guardrail.
The blurry picture is hard to look at, but the mother of two is up and walking today although in considerable pain. Jahnz says the outcome could have been much worse.
"I felt it in there. I could feel it in there," said Jahnz.
The pole pierced her thigh and buttocks, pinning her to the back seat.
"I mean the pipe was, I think they said almost 4 inches in diameter."
Now, days later, Christina Jahnz's family is grateful she is alive and hopes her terrifying ordeal serves a s a warning to others.
