LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) - A Loveland woman managed to safely stop her car after getting hit in the face with a two-pound sledgehammer that fell off a truck and smashed through her car's windshield.
The Loveland Reporter-Herald reports Monday that 60-old Jennifer Coll managed to signal, pull over and turn on the flashers after the incident Friday morning that left her with a broken nose and a bloodied and bruised face. The paper says police told Coll that the driver of the light-colored utility vehicle that had the unsecured sledgehammer probably didn't know what happened.
Coll says her face probably looked like a Halloween character after she stopped and tried to flag down passing motorists before Adrian Mosmess of Loveland stopped to help.
Coll says she simply wants to send the message that tools on work trucks need to be secured.
