Melyssa Ford Seriously Injured After Horrific Car Accident in L.A.

Hip-hop video vixen and reality TV star Melyssa Ford was badly injured in a car accident this week -- and her good friend, Claudia Jordan, posted a pic from the scene.

The 'RHOA' star shared a photo Saturday of Melyssa lying on the ground surrounded by bystanders after a horrific car wreck she was involved in Thursday. Melyssa was travelling on an L.A. freeway when an 18-wheeler clipped her Jeep, flipping her multiple times.

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 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. This was sent to me by a Good Samaritan that didn’t know who he was helping but once he saw the story online he contacted me knowing we’re friends and he was following me. If anyone was a witness to this accident please inbox me any information you may have. As you can imagine Melyssa doesn’t remember much so I’m hoping witnesses will come forward and assist in putting the pieces back together. She was hit by an 18 wheeler. Respect to @manifesting_mary who was the first one to check folks for the poor taste “jokes”. The internet emboldens cowards... it also can shut em down as well. Everyone please send love and prayers to our friend @melyssaford 🙌🏾🙏🏽

Claudia says Melyssa suffered a huge gash on her head and brain bleeding -- adding Melyssa doesn't remember what happened and pleading with witnesses to come forward.

Another friend of Melyssa's, Maryam Iman, notes Melyssa suffered a skull fracture and a concussion on top of the brain bleeding. Maryam goes on to say that Melyssa's gash was 10 inches, and had to be surgically sealed with staples and stitches. Both women say Melyssa is lucky to be alive.

The former "Blood, Sweat & Heels" star -- who had a bottle broken on her head in 2014 --  is said to be healing in a hospital under intensive care and constant surveillance. 

Get well soon.
