‘I was caught underneath a lorry’: Roz talks about her scary car crash


Roz Purcell has opened up about a terrifying car crash she was involved in four years ago.

The model is currently an Ambassador for Skoda and recently she has been learning how to drive with the help of The Anton Savage Show and the Irish School of Motoring.

Speaking on Anton's show today, the Tipperary woman opened up about her fear of motorways: “I got in a really bad crash about 4 years ago, I was caught underneath a lorry.

“It was me and my eldest sister, we were driving home one weekend, and thankfully, it was actually really wet roads so the lorry, we were kind of in its blind spot and he came across and we got caught underneath the front of it and we skidded for about half a kilometre,” she said.

“We were really lucky cause the car was completely wrote off, and my sister and I were completely fine.”

“I just remember [my sister] going ‘are you okay, are you okay?’ and I remember being like ‘she’s so selfless right now’ cause she kept being like ‘are you okay?’ and I just kept thinking about myself, like ‘can’t believe I’m going to die, can’t believe I’m going to die,” she laughed.

“I was really like ‘this is it’, I can’t believe I’m going to die in a car crash."

That was a lucky escape Roz! We all know any kind of car crash can be super scary.
