TEXTING AND DRIVING CAUSES WOMAN TO BE IMPALED

 In News

It was a momentary glance at her phone that led an Elizabeth, NJ woman to being impaled on a guardrail pole. She had just done a voice text and was checking to make sure it was correct and the next thing she recalls is the powder from the airbags and a pole through her body. She had to spend 4 days in the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

Seconds and inches do count. In just a second or two, Christina Jahnz went from busy mother multi-tasking to a near fatal accident victim. Had the pole hit her just an inch or two differently and she could have bled to death before the paramedics could have saved her.

It’s hard to remember, but constant vigilance is the responsibility we all share when we share the road.
