LAKEWOOD — A woman who survived for days after crashing off a Colorado highway still faces a long recovery.

Kristin Hopkins was in critical condition Wednesday, her 44th birthday, after doctors were forced to remove both of her feet. Her doctors and her parents are scheduled to talk about her recover later in the day at the suburban Denver hospital where the single mother of four is being treated.

Her flipped car was discovered Sunday by a husband and wife driving on U.S. Highway 285. They stopped after noticing some glare and notified authorities, never expecting its passenger to still be alive.

Investigators say Hopkins crashed sometime after she left work on April 27, the last time she was seen before she was rescued.
