EXCLUSIVE: Melyssa Ford “Lucky” To Be Alive After Car Accident w/ 18-Wheeler Truck

theJasmineBRAND exclusively reports, reality TV star and model Melyssa Ford  is ‘lucky’ to be alive after being seriously injured in a collision with an 18-wheeler truck on Thursday, June 28th. The devastating crash took place on the Ventura Freeway in Los Angeles. Melyssa, 41, was on her way to dancer Zena Foster’s bridal show. Zena is the fiancée of R&B singer/songwriter, Tank.  Sources tell us that

She is still heavily sedated and in a lot of pain. Her Mother and sister are with her. She is completely traumatized. Injuries are very bad and gruesome. She is really lucky and blessed to be alive.

Her best friend, model Maryam Iman, detailed that Melyssa sustained a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain, and that wearing a seatbelt is what kept her alive,

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 fucking 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.

Unfortunately, former Real Housewives of Atlanta and close friend of Melyssa’s, Claudia Jordan, had to post a graphic photo of the scene of the accident for people to acknowledge the seriousness of the accident. She said,

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 ????”

Melyssa’s mother, Barbara Ford, stated:

It’s so difficult in circumstances like these to live 2,500 miles away from my only daughter…Melyssa is strong, always has been. We are going to get through this together.

We’re sending love and light to Melyssa as she champions this tough time.
