Media personality Melyssa Ford survived a near-death experience recently after she suffered a fractured skull from an accident with an 18-wheeler.

Friends have taken to social media to share news of the accident, though it is not clear when exactly it happened. Former Real Housewives of Atlanta castmate Claudia Jordan used her Instagram to emphasize how serious the accident was.

“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 captioned a photo from the accident. “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.”

Jordan also asked for any witnesses to come forward as Ford does not remember what happened. 

According to close friend Maryam Iman, Ford’s Jeep flipped three times after a collision with the truck. She fractured her skull, suffered a concussion and is suffering from bleeding in her brain.  However, Ford is reportedly alive because she wore her seatbelt. 

There is no word on the driver or if he or she was questioned by authorities. 
 
“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,” Iman captioned an Instagram photo of her and Ford. “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.”

Ford is a former video vixen that was also a castmate on Bravo's Blood, Sweat, & Heels. She is is currently a co-host on the Hollywood Unlocked Uncensored podcast.

We are praying for a speedy recovery.
