Former Video Vixen Melyssa Ford Hospitalized, Recovering From Serious Car Accident

Former video vixen and reality TV star Melyssa Ford has been seriously injured following a collision involving a tractor trailer and her Jeep, which reportedly flipped over three times.

According to an Instagram post written by Maryam Iman, who says she is Ford’s best friend, Ford’s vehicle was clipped by the 18 wheeler and she now has severe injuries–including serious head trauma.

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.”–Maryam Iman

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.

According to Iman, Ford was wearing a seat belt, which may have been what saved her life.

Melyssa Ford was once one of Hip Hop’s top “booty” models.

She’s appeared in numerous magazines, and on several TV shows, including Bravo’s short-lived reality series, Blood, Sweat & Heels, which featured her trying to balance her social life while trying to become a high-end realtor.

Ford was accused of taking part in an allegedly staged fight on the show in which she claimed to have been bashed over the head with a bottle, prompting a trip to the emergency room.

Ford has also been featured on the big screen, most recently appearing in Think Like A Man and its sequel, Think Like A Man Too.

After Following her reign as one of Hip Hop’s top video and print models, Ford, 41, said in a 2008 CNN interview that music videos in general are demeaning to women.

Ford has previously dated rappers Flo Rida, Andre 3000 (of Outkast) and singer/actor Tyrese.

Let’s hope Melyssa makes a speedy and full recovery.
