In a recent Instagram post, Hayley revealed that the couple of seven years had been in a “pretty scary car accident” while driving in the mountains.

“Our accident involved a steep hill, icy roads, a tree, and worst of all, the fear that we would slide off the mountain,” she wrote.

Hayley continued, saying that luckily no other cars were involved and that the paramedics were quick to arrive. She got banged up a little bit and required four stitches above her eyebrow. Hayley was left with a swollen face, too, but

She wrote, ” Now, more than ever, we realize how fragile life is and how important it is to love those around you.”

Hayley included some footage of the road they were driving down, photos of their car after the wreck, and some videos and photos of her getting treated by paramedics and at the emergency room.

Comments from celebrity friend began flooding in from Cheryl Burke, Amy Purdy, Sasha Farber, Kelli Erdmann, Kym Herjavec, Emma Slater, Peta Murgatroyd, Kaitlyn Bristowe, and many more.

Derek commented on the Instagram post, revealing it was even scarier than how Hayley described it.

“The scariest part was that Hayley doesn’t remember anything,” he wrote. “She was dazed afterwards, being cheerful saying we should keep going to dinner as blood ran down her face. That really scared me. She came to 20 minutes later when the firemen arrived.”

The couple celebrated Christmas together and from the photos, it looks like Hayley’s injury healed nicely!
