Jesse Csincsak of ABC’s The Bachelorette and his pregnant wife, Ann Lueders,Â are one lucky couple after Jesse managed to walk away from a car accident that dropped his Jeep 10 feet before crashing into a tree. Keep reading for all the info and pics of the damage.
“It was truly frightening and I am lucky to be alive,” Jesse Csincsak told RadarOnline.com in an interview. “I’m just so lucky my wife Ann [Lueders] wasn’t in the Jeep.”
Ann Lueders, also 28-years-old, is pregnant with the couples’ first child, a son, and is due “at any minute.”
Jesse apparently forget to change the tires on his Jeep, which caused him to lose control of his vehicle on the snowy Colorado road.
“I was coming down a unplowed 9% grade hill which is really f–king steep There was a car already in the ditch on the left and on the right. I saw a car at the stop sign at the bottom of the hill, but I couldn’t stop.
“I pumped my brakes, dodged the cars and headed for a snow bank, hoping it would slow me down.
“What I didn’t know was that behind the embankment there was a 10 foot drop, which threw me and my jeep into the air, smashing into a group of trees then falling to the ground.”
Jesse Csincsak was told by the police officers that arrived to the scene that his aftermarket steel bumper, which hit the tree and split it in half, saved the former Bachelorette winner’s life.
“If I hadn’t had it, the motor would have likely been pushed into the passenger compartment crushing my legs.”
As for Jesse’s Jeep–it wasn’t as lucky as the dad-to-be.
“The crash did $13,000 worth of damage to my car,” Jesse told RadarOnline. “It bent my front axle, cracked my hard top, it cracked my rim and cracked the oil pan for my transmission, but I’m alive and here to talk about it.”
