RHONJ star Kathy Wakile got some bad news over the holidays as her son Joseph got into a pretty nasty car accident while on his way home. While Joseph walked away unharmed, the same can’t be said for his car.
The NJ teen was coming home and swerved to avoid hitting a deer causing him to crash into a tree. Talk about a series of unfortunate events!
Kathy shared photos of the accident on Instagram saying, “Thankful for so many things this year! Most of all @richardwakile & I, THANK GOD our son @josephwakile walked away without a scratch!????”
After the accident, Kathy spoke with The Daily Dish letting them know Joseph was okay and that he was back behind the wheel later that night.
“The Jeeps roll, so he rolled it over. He climbed out and got out, thankfully, without a scratch. And the deer was safe, and Joseph was safe. And we met every rescue worker in the neighborhood, and they were so wonderful. And they welcomed us to the neighborhood with a quick response and made sure everything is OK and, thankfully, he’s OK. What a way to end an old year.”
Kathy went on to say that Joseph’s accident puts “everything into perspective. [You have to] just slow it down and take a breather and be thankful for all your blessings and your health and the safety of your family. We made him drive that evening, As soon as we knew he was OK, we made him get back in the car right away. He’s a good driver; he’s a great driver and [there’s] no sense in making him get hung up on it.”
Glad to hear that Joseph’s doing well after his accident! Those NJ roads and deer can be a bitch sometimes!
Are you surprised Kathy shared Joseph’s accident publicly? Do you want to see Kathy and her family back on RHONJ for season seven?
