Former Bravo star Melyssa Ford is recovering from a horrific car crash that left her seriously injured.
The hip-hop music video model and reality star — Melyssa starred on Bravo’s Blood, Sweat & Heels in 2015 — is lucky to be alive after her Jeep rolled multiple times on a Los Angeles, California, freeway Thursday.
The 41-year-old was on her way to celebrate a bridal shower just after 12:30 p.m. when an 18-wheeler truck merged into her lane on the Ventura Freeway to Glendale, clipping her back right tire, her rep tells PEOPLE.

The impact caused her 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited 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.
