Melyssa Ford has been hospitalized after suffering very serious injuries in a near-fatal car accident involving an 18-wheeler on Thursday.
The news was made public via social media by the model’s close friend, Maryam Iman, who says Melyssa was “clipped by an 18 wheeler” and it caused her jeep to flip three times.
Melyssa Ford suffered very serious injuries including a fractured skull, a brain bleed and concussion.
Just yesterday my best friend/adopted big sister @melyssaford Got clipped by an 18 wheeler…her jeep flipped three times. 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. Seeing you in the hospital bed reminded how short life is and how fast things can happen.
Driving home yesterday from the hospital completely choked me up. 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 is beyond lucky to be alive. Nothing is f*cking funny about someone getting in a car accident. Mel has an 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 @melyssaford and I’m glad you’re still here with us.
