After teen was impaled during car crash community raises funds

The community is coming together to help an Ankeny girl pay her medical bills after a tragic car accident. Last month, 17-year-old Trinity Shannon was impaled after the car her friend was driving crashed into a bridge. She said it took first responders more than an hour to get her out of the car. “When I woke up, my feet was what was holding me from the bridge not impaling me completely,” Trinity said. “Somehow, I don’t know how it missed my main arteries, my main organs. The only thing that it didn’t was splinter my organs and got like debris and stuff in there.”Trinity has had a couple of surgeries and her medical bills are piled up. There will be two events to help her and her family with those costs. From 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday there will be a fundraiser at Planet Smothie in Altoona. A dollar from each smoothie will go to Trinity’s family. Between noon and 3 p.m. at Yankee Clipper in Ankeny there will be raffle prizes, food and drinks. All the money will go to Trinity.
