Melyssa Ford gets hurt in a severe car crash which leaves her with a fractured skull. The news is shared by her friend on social media.
Melyssa Ford was badly injured in a car accident after her vehicle was flipped multiple times on a Los Angeles freeway. The incident occurred on Thursday (June 27) when Melyssa was driving on a freeway and was hit by an 18-wheeler. The vehicle sent her jeep flipping three times and in the process, injuring the reality star. Her friend, Claudia Jordan, took to Instagram to share a picture of Melyssa which showed the scene of the incident.
Melyssa was spotted being tended to on the freeway by Good Samaritans while her overturned jeep was beside her. "'It's a shame I have to do this to let folks know the seriousness of @melyssaford 's accident (I got her permission first) but here it is. She was involved in a horrific accident that could have easily taken her life. It's actually a miracle she survived," she captioned the picture.
"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 added."This was sent to me by a Good Samaritan that didn't know who he was helping but once he saw the story online he contacted me knowing we're friends and he was following me." Claudia also urged people to come forward if they might have witnessed the accident and to send her 'any information you may have'.
She stated that Melyssa didn't recall much about what had happened and eyewitnesses could 'assist in putting the pieces back together'. Melyssa's friend Maryam Iman also took to Instagram to share an update on her after she visited the reality star in the hospital. "Thank god she was wearing her seatbelt but sustained serious head inquiries. She fractured her skull as well as a concussion and bleeding in her brain," she wrote.
She also slammed the trolls who made fun of the accident. "It's a blessing you are still here with us. However, I'm absolutely disgusted by the lack of sensitivity and ignorant comments being made on Instagram. This is not a joke," she wrote. "She is beyond lucky to be alive. Nothing is f***ing funny about someone getting in a car accident. Mel 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 the love."
After the incident took place she was quickly rushed to L.A. hospital and is under intensive care and constant surveillance. Melyssa has appeared in music videos for Jay-Z, Usher and Alicia Keys, and others. At the same time, she has also starred in the Bravo reality series Blood, Sweat & Heels for two seasons in 2014-2015.
