Los Angeles, July 3 (IANS) Former "Bravo" star Melyssa Ford is recovering from a car crash that left her seriously injured.
The hip hop music video model and reality television star's Jeep rolled multiple times on a freeway here last week.
The 41-year-old was on her way to celebrate her friend's bridal shower when an 18-wheeler truck merged into her lane on the Ventura Freeway to Glendale, clipping her back right tyre, her representative told people.com
The impact caused her vehicle to flip three times before landing upside down.
Melyssa sustained a skull fracture, bleeding on the brain and severe cuts and bruises. A 10-inch cut across her face and head had to be surgically closed. She remains in the hospital.
"It's so difficult in circumstances like these to live 2,500 miles away from my only daughter," Melyssa's mother Barbara Ford, who lives in Toronto, Canada, told people.com.
"Melyssa is strong, always has been. We are going to get through this together," she added.
Her family is now asking for members of the public to come forward if they witnessed the collision so that the truck driver can be tracked down.
