Thick Leeyonce details horrific car crash: 'I'm blessed to be alive’
Plus-size model and social media influencer Thick Leeyonce, real name Lesego Legobane, has given a detailed account of her car accident which happened a few weeks ago.
In a 20-minute video which she posted on her YouTube channel this past weekend, Thick Leeyonce narrates events leading to the chilling accident that almost cost her life.
Sitting comfortably in a couch, the body-positive models starts by telling her fans that she’s home recovery from the tragic accident that occurred while she and her family ( her two younger sisters and her four-year-old nephew) were returning from church.
“As I was about to turn, we were hit by a speeding motorbike. The car spun with us...everything happened so fast. I remember hearing a loud bang! My body was upside down. I could feel blood all over my face. I could feel body everywhere and I kept asking, where is my four-year nephew. They said he was fine, she shared.
She added: “I remember looking at the car and I could not believe what the car looked like. I'm blessed to be sitting here, to still be alive, because the accident was so tragic. I spent two weeks in hospital.
"By God's grace, I don't know how he’s okay ( nephew), I don’t how I’m okay. I feel like we're covered by a higher power.”
