The Ang Probinsyano actress shares what happened after her driver fell asleep while driving.
After packing up from taping early morning last May 16, Jessy Mendiola shares on her personal Instagram account that she had a near death experience on the road because of her driver, who fell asleep at the wheel.
"My driver dozed off while at the wheel and lost control, my van hit a barrier and we swayed from left to right for a bit before my driver got control of the steering wheel again. I honestly thought I was going to die.
"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. I didn't wish for this experience but it made me appreciate my life more. I thank God for waking me up before things got worse..."
Jessy also shared that she did not blame her driver for what happened even though they could have gotten into a serious accident.
"I didn't get mad at my driver because I knew he was tired too, maybe he thought he could go on. My advice to drivers or to anyone who's driving long hours, when you're feeling sleepy or tired, please stop and take a quick nap. You are responsible for the lives of the people riding with you.
Very thankful nothing happened to us. Thank you Lord for another day."
