Wow, this is absolutely terrifying. Chuck Wicks was recently involved in a brutal car accident while traveling to Mardi Gras, and his doctors told him that, after fracturing his skull and vertebrae, he barely survived. Luckily, he’s going to be okay. See his detailed message of the scary crash here.
Chuck Wicks, 37, was driving to New Orleans with his country music morning show co-hosts, Ty Bentli and Kelly Ford, and producer Glenn Johnson, when a horrible rain storm hit and their car hydroplaned off the side of the road. The vehicle was totaled after rolling over twice into a ditch, and although everybody survived, Chuck is facing some brutal injuries in the aftermath.
“Throughout the entire process I remember my neck just getting stiffer and stiffer and between the shock of everything and being soaken wet from rolling through the water filled ditch I couldn’t stop shaking,” he wrote on social media. He then detailed the fear that quickly sunk in. “As my head got stiffer through the ride [to the hospital] and I knew everyone else was ok I started to panic a bit…and honestly I was scared.” Read Chuck’s full post here:

First… Thank you to all of you who have reached out with your concerns messages text/calls prayers.. you name it.. Thank you!! It's been a scary couple days to say the least. We Ty, Kelly & Chuck and our producer Glenn were traveling to Mardi Gras to be Grand Marshall in one of the parades. While driving through a bad rain storm our car struck a puddle and hydroplaned, causing it to roll twice into a ditch full of water. Talk about Slow Motion.. it was if the world literally stopped. When the vehicle did finally stop I immediately heard Ty say is everyone ok… is everyone ok. Then for some random reason I just starting checking my teeth and body and checking where everyone was. At this moment it was safe to say I was in shock. I won't speak for Ty Kelly or Glenn.. but I'm pretty sure they were too.. we all crawl out of the vehicle which is completely totaled at this point. No other vehicles were involved. I remember seeing so many cars just ride by wondering why they weren't stopping. Eventually one did.. the one turned into 2..3….4.. and so on. Police, Firetrucks, and Ambulances arrive. Throughout the entire process I remember my neck just getting stiffer and stiffer and between the shock of everything and being soaken wet from rolling through the water filled ditch I couldn't stop shaking. I told the paramedic I had neck and head pain and they immediately put me on the backboard/Stretcher. As my head got stiffer through the ride and I knew everyone else was ok I started to panic a bit.. and honestly I was scared. They stretcher me into the emergency room cut off my wet clothes and just start sticking me with IV's. I found cuts on me I didn't even knew I had because the adrenaline wouldn't let me feel them. They set me up for immediate CAT Scan and MRI. When the Doctor looked at my results and said I was lucky to be walking and talking then I knew something wasn't right. So here's the Deal… I fractured my Skull and I also have a cervical vertebrae fracture in my C2 region. What does this mean? It means I'm lucky I'm alive and not paralyzed. Good news. I'm not.

Even though he avoided paralysis (or worse), it’ll be a long road to recovery for the country star. Chuck went on to explain that he’ll have to wear a neck brace for three months, while experiencing discomfort for an unknown amount of time. “Be safe out there,” he urged his fans, in conclusion. “Don’t take anything for granted.”
