Leventhal quickly recovered sufficiently to respond to his wife’s Instagram post.
The veteran Fox News journalist said, “Honestly I’m lucky to be alive.”
“Scariest moments of my life,” he stated. This makes everything even more meaningful ❤️”
Leventhal greeted his followers and well-wishers in a post written from his hospital bed.
As a consequence of a single-vehicle accident on Interstate 10 in Southern California, he had four fractured ribs and a shattered foot bone.
“I hydroplaned. I was heading east on the I-10… just hit what felt like a patch of ice, water, whatever. Road was slick, lost control, slammed into the wall, hard.”
