Melyssa Ford is lucky to be alive after an accident with a semi truck in L.A.
Her rep told People that she was on her way to a bridal shower when the 18-wheeler allegedly tried to merge into her lane and clipped her back right tire.
Melyssa’s 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited flipped three times and landed upside down.
Her friend, “Celebrity Apprentice” alum Claudia Jordan, with permission, shared updates on Melyssa’s injuries.
Claudia wrote, “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.”
People detailed her injuries, saying the 41-year-old was hospitalized after suffering “a skull fracture, bleeding on the brain and severe cuts and bruises” and “a 10-inch cut across her face and head had to be surgically closed.”
The truck driver did not stop, and her family is asking that any witnesses come forward.
Melyssa is best known for her 2015 appearance on Bravo’s “Blood, Sweat & Heels.” She is also the co-host of “Hollywood Unlocked Uncensored.”
Melyssa’s close friend Maryam Iman also provided details on the crash saying the star was saved by her seatbelt in an Instagram post.
“Seeing you in the hospital bed reminded how short life is and how fast things can happen,” Iman wrote. “Driving home yesterday from the hospital completely choked me up. It’s a blessing you are still here with us.”
Iman added that Melyssa “has a 10-inch open wound that had to be surgically closed with staples and stitches and several abrasions on her body.”
“Life is short and so please spread love. Please only send my friend love and healing during this time. Hug your loved ones and hold them close ❤ love you and I’m glad you’re still here with us,” she wrote.
