CBS Denver reports that a woman driving on I-25 near Fort Collins drove into a wire fence along the highway while putting on make-up. Jennifer Lamblin was driving a Honda Oddysey with six passengers, including five children at the time of the accident. The man in the passenger seat, the only other adult in the car, was steering while the driver applied her make-up. Ms. Lamblin, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the vehicle when it crashed. Only one of the five children in the van was properly restrained.
