"There was an accident. Two cars collided and I was on the sidewalk, and they kind of went across the lanes, and one of the cars struck me," Linsey explained to ET. "I didn't really understand. I mean, I saw my feet and kind of the state that they were in, which was not facing the right direction. Both of my ankles were dislocated and broken and then my tibia and fibula, which are your shin bones, went through the skin."
Now, two months and two surgeries later, Linsey is in physical therapy and expected to make a full recovery.
"I'm up on one foot now and able to walk with a walker and hopefully getting the word soon that I can walk on the other foot and maybe loose one of the moon boots," she said.
Linsey is used to fighting. At 18 she was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. She was able to beat the disease but there was still a question of whether she could have children.
"I was told that sometimes the chemo treatments can affect your fertility," Linsey said. "It wasn't a sure thing because I was so young. In June of last year my daughter was born and I was so thrilled I couldn't believe it. She was a miracle baby. She's amazing."
