LAKEWOOD — A woman stranded in her car for up to a week after crashing off a Colorado highway says thinking about her four children helped her survive.

Kristin Hopkins' feet were crushed after landing upside down off U.S. Highway 285. She didn't have any food or water. The single mother was discovered May 4 after passersby happened to notice some glare from below the road.

In her first interviews since the crash, Hopkins says the first thing she thought after waking up in her upside down car was that it was her turn to pick up her children at school. Later, she thought about how she had to get back to them because they needed a mother.

Her feet and part of her legs were amputated and Hopkins has begun rehabilitation.
