Melyssa Ford Hospitalized After Car Accident

posted by Dawn Dai -

Actress Melyssa Ford was involved in a horrific accident that caused her 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to flip 3 times.

Reports indicate that Ford was heading westbound on the 134 freeway in Glendale when an 18-wheeler merged into her lane and clipped her back right tire.

The 41-year-old reality star survived the near fatal crash with a 10-inch open wound that left her with a skull fracture, concussion and bleeding in her brain. Luckily the injury was sustained with stitches and staples.

The suspect is still at large and dear friend, Claudia Jordan posted a picture from the scene.

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’s injured FOR REAL. She doesn’t even remember this as she has a huge gash in her head and blood on the brain. 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. 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. Respect to @manifesting_mary who was the first one to check folks for the poor taste “jokes”. The internet emboldens cowards... it also can shut em down as well. Everyone please send love and prayers to our friend @melyssaford 🙌🏾🙏🏽
