Just a day after he was involved in a terrifying car accident and hospitalized from his resulting injuries, country singer and radio host Chuck Wicks opened up to his fans about the harrowing ordeal.
Yesterday, country singer Wicks and his fellow hosts from America's Morning Show (Ty and Kelly) were involved in a single-car accident on a highway heading toward New Orleans for Mardi Gras. All three, along with their producer, were taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital where Wicks was admitted and the others released.
Today, Wicks has taken to social media revealing exactly what happened and giving his perspective of the incident.
"It's been a scary couple days to say the least," He writes in the post. "While driving through a bad rain storm our car struck a puddle and hydroplaned, causing it to roll twice into a ditch full of water...it was as if the world literally stopped."
He says that as soon as the vehicle stopped moving, his coworker began asking everyone if they were alright.
"For some random reason I just starting checking my teeth and body and checking where everyone was. At this moment it was safe to say I was in shock," Wicks continued. "We all crawl[ed] out of the vehicle which is completely totaled at this point...Police, Firetrucks, and Ambulances arrive. Throughout the entire process I remember my neck just getting stiffer and stiffer and between the shock of everything and being soaked wet from rolling through the water filled ditch I couldn't stop shaking."
Wicks informed the emergency personnel that he had neck and head pain and they immediately placed him on a stretcher to prevent further movement and injury. It wasn't until he was taken into the hospital and had several tests run that doctors knew the severity of his injuries.
"The doctor looked at my results and said I was lucky to be walking and talking - then I knew something wasn't right," He revealed. "I fractured my Skull and I also have a cervical vertebrae fracture in my C2 region... It means I'm lucky I'm alive and not paralyzed."
The country singer and radio personality will be wearing a neck brace for a few months while he recovers and is still in the hospital hoping he will be released soon. Currently, Wicks says that he's in a lot of pain from the injuries but thanks all his fans for their prayers and support during this time.
Wicks also stated that he is taking some time to recover and is looking at life with renewed gratitude and thanking God that he is expected to fully recover from all his injuries.
We are so incredibly thankful that he will be fine and we are keeping him in our prayers as he takes time to heal.
