The Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s close friend Brittany Taltos was involved in a terrible sunbathing accident over the weekend. The Huffington Post reported that Taltos, better known as one of the twins on “The Jersey Shore” was sunbathing over the weekend and was seriously injured when a truck drove over her head.
Brittany Taltos, appeared on a few episodes of “The Jersey Shore” with her twin sister, suffered a nasty, freak sunbathing accident while she and her twin sister were sunbathing in their front yard in Gainesville, Florida, on Sunday afternoon when one of her friends decided to use a pick-up truck to retrieve a cooler.
Taltos, 23-year-old was reportedly wearing headphone listening to music while catching some rays, and could not hear the Independent Florida Alligator truck that was driving across the yard. Brittany stated that she did not realize the truck was coming in her direction until the vehicles’ tire ran across her face, crushing it.
“I woke up with half a tire on my face. I thought I was going to die.”
The Independent reports that Taltos ears started to bleed from the extreme pressure. The incident also caused a “noticeable depression in the lawn.” A 911 emergency call was immediately placed and Brittany Taltos was rushed to a nearby hospital where she received 15 stitches on her ear.
Taltos received bruises on her face, a cut on her head, and some ear canal damage but she managed to escape the incident without any brain damage. Brittany Taltos stated that she really believes that she “dodged a bullet” and local authorities and doctors are all surprised that the young woman wasn’t seriously brain damaged in the bizarre accident.
Taylor Green, 20, the driver of the pickup truck, backed his vehicle after dropping off a grill.
As the wheels of his pickup truck pinned Taltos to the ground he heard her screams and drove forward. Florida Lt Tracey Hidgon stated, ‘It was very fortunate she was on softer ground where this occurred or the injuries may have been much worse if not fatal.’
Brittany Taltos said the experience has given her a new appreciation for life revealing “I am in such a good mood today, even though my head is pounding,” she said.
There have been no reports as to whether Jersey Shore’s Mike Sorrentino has contacted his former fling or not since her injury.
