Oh well, what's one more hole down there?
Woman Impaled Through Buttocks While Texting And Driving
ELIZABETH, Colo., Sept. 2 (UPI) -- A woman impaled herself on a pole Wednesday when she crashed her vehicle at low speed after briefly looking down at a text.
Christina Jahnz told KUSA that she was leaving Elizabeth Middle School after her daughter accidentally left her saxophone at home.
The trip made Jahnz late for a business meeting, so she tried sending a voice text to a friend as she drove from the parking lot at a speed of 20 m.p.h.
"I looked down to make sure it was all right. The next thing I knew, I was looking up, there was white powder from the air bags deployed," Jahnz said.
The vehicle struck a guardrail, sending a pole into the front of her truck, through her thigh and buttocks and into a rear door.
Local firefighters were called to the scene and had to saw off the front and back ends of the pole before rushing Jahnz to the hospital.
