Kristin Hopkins, 43, is alive after her wrecked car was found at the bottom of an embankment off a highway in Colorado. Her car was spotted by a passerby who had stopped to view scenery nearly a week after the accident. The vehicle rested upside down after flying 120 feet off the highway and rolling an additional 200 feet into an aspen grove.
“The crash alone would have taken its toll on her,” Colorado State Trooper Dean Enright said. “It’s surprising that she survived the crash at all, and then to be down there for that amount of days without food or water,” Enright trailed off.
