Fiona Simpson, 23, was driving on the highway with her four-month-old daughter Clara and her 78-year-old grandmother when the group was caught in the powerful storm.
Simpson told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation she pulled over and thought to wait out the storm. But the car was not up to the task of the sheltering the family, and large hail began smashing the windows, spurring Simpson to leap to the backseat and try to shield her daughter from harm.
The photos are unbelievable. It's shocking to note that she was in her car the whole time while the hail did that much damage to her body.
