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."

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.
