Jahnz said she "did a voice text" because she was running late, but "looked down to make sure it was all right."

Then, as Jahnz glanced down, she crashed into a guard rail. The rail went through her car and pierced her thigh and buttocks.

She estimated that she was going about 20 mph and only looked down for a "split second."
