*Former video vixen Melyssa Ford is now on the road to recovery following the horrific crash involving her jeep and a tractor-trailer in early July.
The model and entrepreneur took to Twitter this weekend to give supporters an update. The accident left her with a fractured skull, a concussion, bleeding on the brain and a 10-inch open wound, Page Six reports.
“I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the prayers and love and support. I’ve been overwhelmed and humbled by it,” Ford, 41, said in a video from her bed.

In the brief clip, Melissa is lying down and wearing a white bandage around her head. She also thanked the emergency first responders, hospital workers and friends who’ve been by her side.
“I’m home and trying to recover. I’m still in a lot of pain and my body is slowly healing… some days are harder than others,” she added. “I’m grateful that I was given another chance at life.”
Ford’s friend Claudia Jordan set up a Go Fund Me to help ease the burden of hefty medical bills. “I can’t express my gratitude enough,” she said. So far, the campaign has raised $22,000, with hopes of reaching $100,000.
Melissa thanked her supporters on Instagram and noted that she struggles to remember details of the crash. Because of her injuries, she may never fully recall the tragic event.
