Jessy Mendiola 'appreciates life more' after road accident
MANILA, Philippines – Actress Jessy Mendiola said she's grateful to be fine after she and her driver got into a road accident on Wednesday, May 16 after a shooting.
In her Instagram stories, Jessy said that her driver fell asleep and lost control of the van he was driving, hitting a barrier.
"We swayed from left to right for a bit before my driver got the control of the steering wheel again. I honestly thought I was going to die," she said.
"The scariest part was the side that got hit was where I was sitting, maybe that was why I was the one who woke up first. I'm very thankful nothing happened to me and no other vehicles went against us," Jessy said, adding that she did not get mad at her driver, who was tired too.
She reminded drivers to stop and rest or nap before if they feel tired or sleepy while driving.
"You are responsible for the lives of the people riding with you," she said. – Rappler.com
