Unfortunately her left leg was still clipped into the bike and didn't go over as quickly, and her knee protruding out caught the top of one of the posts.

Just horrific, and hope the best for her recovery - from all her interviews the mental aspect of not competing might be more tortuous than the physical pain.
you are right...as she is sliding on the rail her left thigh gets can-opener-ed by the rail-rail interface at the post. its bad enough seeing it on my phone let alone high def to notice that detail.
