Popular TV personality and podcaster Melyssa Ford was involved in a serious car crash last week. Now we have
The former Bravo star Melyssa Ford is sill recovering from a horrific car crash nearly a week ago. The beauty is lucky to be alive after her Jeep was hit by a semi truck - and rolled multiple times on a Los Angeles, California, freeway.
The 41-year-old was on her way to celebrate a bridal shower just after 12:30 p.m. when an 18-wheeler truck merged into her lane on the Ventura Freeway to Glendale, clipping her back right tire, her rep tells PEOPLE.
The impact caused her 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited to flip three times before landing upside down.
Melyssa sustained a skull fracture, bleeding on the brain and severe cuts and bruises. A 10-inch cut across her face and head had to be surgically closed. She remains in the hospital.
Melyssa started her career as a hip-hop music video model. She later starred on Bravo’s hit series Blood, Sweat & Heels in 2015. Now, she's one of the most successful podcasters in the world.
Here are the GRAPHIC pics:
"She was involved in a horrific accident that could have easily taken her life. It’s actually a miracle she survived. She’s injured FOR REAL. She doesn’t even remember this as she has a huge gash in her head and blood on the brain," she shared, in part. "If anyone was a witness to this accident please inbox me any information you may have. As you can imagine Melyssa doesn’t remember much so I’m hoping witnesses will come forward and assist in putting the pieces back together. She was hit by an 18 wheeler... Everyone please send love and prayers to our friend [Melyssa]."
