Roz Purcell has opened up about being in a car accident where she thought she was going to die.

The model has revealed that she was involved in a terrifying crash with her sister a few years ago, which left her fearing for her life.

Speaking on The Anton Savage Show on Today FM, she said: “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.”

Roz continued: “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.

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

The cookbook author also joked that, once she realised her and her sister were ok, she realised she also narrowly escaped mortification.

“One of the other sides of the story was, the day we were leaving, I had just got given this giant poster of myself. It was a cover I shot with my dad from a Life Magazine, it was giant,” she laughed.

“We tried to fit it in the back of the window so the back of her window would have been just a picture of me. Luckily, it didn’t fit because if we were in the crash and anyone would have seen that, they would have been like ‘That girl has a giant picture of herself in the boot!”
