Real Housewives of Atlanta star Melyssa Ford was in a near-fatal car accident, miraculously surviving but left with a fractured skull.

MELYSSA FORD NEARLY KILLED IN CAR ACCIDENT

While the finer details concerning the incident are currently unknown, the severity of Ford’s encounter with an 18-wheeler cannot be understated. Her friend Claudia Jordan took to Instagram, posting a picture of the crash.

“She [Ford] was involved in a horrific accident that could have easily taken her life,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta alumni writes. “It’s actually a miracle she survived.” Jordan continues, adding how her friend harbors “a huge gash in her head and blood on the brain” and cannot remember her traumatic event. She also urged any witnesses to come forward to aid in the investigation.

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 🙌🏾🙏🏽

Maryam Iman, another friend of Ford’s, similarly took to social media, explaining how Ford’s “jeep flipped three times.” Iman continued, writing how she saw her “best friend/adopted sister” lying in bed with a “10 inch open wound that had to be surgically closed with staples and stitches and several abrasions on her body,” reminding her how finite life can be. “Driving home yesterday from the hospital completely choked me up,” she adds. She closed her post by wishing her longtime friend a speedy recovery.

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.
