Melyssa Ford Pens Heartfelt Message About Her Near-Death Car Accident

A month ago, she nearly died and suffered a skull fracture destroying a lot of her memory.

A month ago, Melyssa Ford was involved in a serious car accident that almost took her life.

  • The model and reality television star’s close friend Maryam Iman, relayed the news in an Instagram post on June 29. Ford’s Jeep reportedly flipped three times after a collision with the truck. Luckily, Ford has been able to pull through, but not without some set back.

    During separate Instagram and Twitter posts about the crash, the former video vixen reflected on her horrific ordeal and says she’s lost some of her memory, particularly time after the accident.

  • “I have struggled to remember a lot of what happened during the course of my recovery,” he captioned in her IG post. “Due to my skull fracture and concussion, there are parts I may never remember. What I do know now, after seeing photos and hearing the accounts from people that came to my rescue before the EMT’s, is that some incredible human beings stopped to pull me from the wreckage of my Jeep, risking their lives not knowing if the car was at risk of catching fire. They removed their own clothing to place under and around my head to hold the gaping wound to my skull closed, and held a hat over my face to shield me from the sun.”

    As for her fans, Ford says she’s so grateful for their support as well as the well wishes and company she’s received from her family and friends.

    “I’m humbled by the love and care and concern I’ve received,” she continued. “To my friends who raced to my hospital bed and rallied around me since the day of the crash, you are my forever family. From bringing me everything I could possibly need to having the forethought to start a Go Fund Me to assist with my present and future medical expenses, I’ll never be able to convey how much it has meant to me to know, without a doubt, that you had my back in my greatest hour of need.”

    Social media’s responding to Melyssa Ford’s reflections on life and they too are being supportive.

  • We’re glad to hear Melyssa Ford is doing better. Hopefully she can make a full recovery.
