Unfortunately, tragedy has brought legally separated Ashley, 45, and racing car champion husband Dario, 40, closer together. After a terrible car crash, Ashley realized how much she loved her almost ex, and the couple is reportedly ready to give their marriage another go.

Actress Ashley Judd and Scottish race car driver Dario Franchitti split in January, but it looks like they’re going to give marriage a second shot after Ashley reportedly rushed to Dario’s side after his shocking Oct. 6 accident.

The actress dropped everything and flew to her estranged husband’s bedside in Texas, after he nearly died while crashing his car on the race track at the Grand Prix of Houston. Dario’s near death experience was a wake-up call to Ashley about ending her marriage to him.

“They are going to give it another try after he recovers. His accident made her realize how much she loves him,” US Weekly reported.

We’re so glad to see that after 11 years of marriage and nine-months separation, these two seem to be recommitting to their vows — in sickness and in health!

When Dario’s car crashed he sustained a broken ankle, two fractured vertebrae and a concussion. The crash was so massive it threw debris into the crowd where 13 fans and an IndyCar Series official were also injured.
