Kelly Dodd’s husband, Rick Leventhal, is “lucky to be alive” after getting into a horrifying car crash on Tuesday.
“So lucky to be alive & grateful for the well wishes & care I’m getting. 4 broken ribs, fractured bone right foot, wounded pride,” Rick captioned an Instagram post. “So far, that’s it .”
He then elaborated on his accident in a video on Instagram.
“I hydroplaned heading east on 410, about 40 minutes outside of Palm Desert, just straight away hit what felt like a patch of ice,” he said, “It was just water or whatever.”
He continued, “Roads were slick, lost control, slammed into the wall hard. Started spitting around across lanes of traffic and slammed right into the back of a tractor-trailer, ripped the front end of a Mercedes off, and smashed a windshield.”
Rick added that one of the windows in his car “busted” and “both airbags” deployed.
“I think I might’ve broke my ribs from the airbag,” he said.
Despite Rick’s claims that he’s “fine,” the doctors “want to keep me in the hospital for a little bit.”
He added. “But it could have been so much worse.”
As for Rick’s wife, she was in Aspen at the time of his accident. However, she asked fans for their prayers on Instagram.
“There will be no smash tomorrow on @youtube, the rick and kelly show. My husband got in a horrible car accident,” the Real Housewives of Orange County alum captioned photos of the accident. “He is in the ER.. please say prayers for @rickleventhal.”
Kelly then opened up more in a video on her Instagram Stories.
Several members of Kelly’s Bravo family sent well wishes to Rick in the comment section of her Instagram post.
RHOC is set to return for season 17 in early 2023.
