Just over 4 weeks ago I was involved in a near fatal car crash. I have struggled to remember a lot of what happened during the course of my recovery. 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. Just days before, I had been having a moment where I feared for humanity. Where it seemed we were more interested in capturing a moment rather than helping a soul in need. My fears were put to rest, by the quick thinking and compassionate actions of the Good Samaritans that helped me, the fast acting EMT workers and trauma staff and Huntington Memorial hospital and by the overwhelming outpouring of support that I’ve received from people all over the world. I’m humbled by the love and care and concern I’ve received. 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.
A few months ago, details surfaced surrounding Melyssa’s near-death experience.
The star of Bravo’s 2014 series Blood, Sweat and Heels was driving on a Los Angeles freeway when an 18-wheeler truck clipped her back right tire while merging, causing Ford’s 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited to flip over three times before eventually landing on the highway upside down. The 41-year-old suffered a fractured skull, bleeding on the brain and bodily abrasions. Ford’s face and head sustained a 10-inch cut, which doctors had to surgically close with stitches and staples.

Ford’s family eventually came forward to speak out on the accident.
“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 tells PEOPLE. “Melyssa is strong, always has been. We are going to get through this together.” Her devastated family is now asking for members of the public to come forward if they witnessed the collision so the truck driver can be tracked down.
