TROUP, TX (KLTV) - She only weighs about 120 pounds, but she was somehow able to lift hundreds of pounds of bent steel, plastic and rubber from her older sister's body.

Monie Rodgers, 15, was riding in the passenger seat of her mother's Volvo S60, Monday night.  Her sister, Diyamon Martin, 17, was driving. There was a family friend, another teenage girl, in the back seat.

The girls were traveling east on F.M. 2493, just outside of Bullard when Diyamon lost control of the car, skidded from the highway and crashed. DPS troopers say the car flipped two to three times, at least. One of the girls was thrown from the car. Diyman's leg was crushed.

Amazingly, all three girls survived.
