Extreme Weight Loss' personal trainer Chris Powell was involved in a serious car accident yesterday with his wife Heidi and 3-year-old son Cash — and the aftermath is pretty scary.
The 34-year-old ABC star posted pictures on his Instagram and described the terrifying incident. "We were rear ended by a car doing approx. 45 mph while we were at a complete stop," he writes. "One of the most terrifying experiences of my life was the moment before I turned around to check on Cash, who was screaming behind me."
As many of you may have heard, Heidi, Cash, and I were in what could have been a disastrous car accident yesterday. We were rear ended by a car doing approx 45mph while we were at a complete stop. One of the most terrifying experiences of my life was the moment before I turned around to check on Cash, who was screaming behind me. We definitely had some angels watching over us yesterday, and thank goodness he was okay - just a little bruised up. Heidi and I are good, just some bumps and bruises, and a few cuts that we have no idea how they happened! We had just dropped off little Ruby not 5 minutes before, and it brings me to tears every time to think of how the outcome could have been different. Heidi and I have spent the last day holding our little ones and letting them know how much we love them. We want to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers. Life can change so quickly. Please take just a few seconds out of your day to let those close to you know how much you love them. #blessed
Shook up from the accident, the family is reportedly doing okay with some minor bruises. Chris and Heidi have four children, two from Heidi's previous marriage, but only Cash was with them.
Chris writes that he is thankful for the kind words, prayers and his family even moreso. "Heidi and I spent the last day holding our little ones and letting them know how much we love them."
He reminds us all that "life can change so quickly," and asks that we let those close to us know how much we love them.
