Melyssa Ford suffered a fractured skull, concussion and bleeding in her brain after her vehicle was flipped multiple times in a Los Angeles freeway wreck, according to her friends.
The 41-year-old Canadian model and reality star was driving on a freeway on Thursday when an 18-wheeler clipped her Jeep and sent it flipping three times.
Her friend Claudia Jordan, 45, posted a photo on Saturday on Instagram of Melyssa being tended to on the freeway by Good Samaritans next to her overturned Jeep.

The former star of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta wrote in the caption: '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.'
Claudia also asked anyone who witnessed the accident to send her 'any information you may have'.
