Well, there's enough of a charge time on her frame shift, even for such extremely short-range jumps, that she knew she wasn't going to be able to get to Ui and then get both of them clear before the truck hit them. Similarly, tanking the impact directly wasn't going to help—she wouldn't have been harmed, but she didn't have a good way to brace for it, so all it would have changed was that the object that plowed fatally into Ui would have been her instead of the truck. Not ideal! Throwing the Klein field was the obvious solution to both problems.

(They were also too far from shore to leave it to Rensouhou-chan. I mean the truck was in range, but the flight time on the shells would have been too long to help. Also, although she has no specific orders about avoiding disclosure, bombardments are so ostentatious. :)
