The couple didn’t explain how the accident came to be, whether the driver lost his balance or the car failed break but, they described their situation as “pretty scary” and it involved, “a steep hill, icy roads, a tree, and worst of all, the fear that we would slide off the mountain.”

Continuing, the “So You Think You Can Dance” alum said, “Given the circumstances, we have so much to be grateful for. First, there were no other people involved. Second, the quick response from paramedics. And lastly, that we are both okay and that I only walked away a little banged up with a swollen face, and four stitches above my eyebrow.”

Hayley went on to add, “Now, more than ever, we realize how fragile life is and how important it is to love those around you. We hope that everyone has a safe, healthy, and happy holiday season. XO.”

Derek said, “The scariest part was that Hayley doesn’t remember anything. She was dazed afterward, being cheerful saying we should keep going to dinner as blood ran down her face. That really scared me. She came to 20 minutes later when the firemen arrived.”
