Wishing each other safe travels when a person has to travel a distance is normal. After all, you never know when or how an accident might occur.
Chinese actress Li Xi Er (李羲儿) worried netizens when news of her in an accident made headlines. Their concerns weren’t unfounded, she was involved in a major car accident which ended with her car being flipped while she was still in it!
On Sunday (3rd October), the 33-year-old actress had apparently been travelling in a red car with her father. They were passing through Zhongcun Bridge (中村大桥) in Lufeng, Yunnan Province to Hexi Shangcun (河西上村). However, it is suspected they were not familiar with the mountain roads.
In an attempt to avoid an accident with a truck, Li’s car accidentally flipped over to the side of the road. The actress was still in the car when it flipped and was badly injured. Her left eyebrow arch bone was fractured and she was in shock. Her eye injury was deep and required 54 stitches. At present, everyone involved in the accident is out of danger, however, Li apparently required further treatment at the hospital.
Fans were worried after viewing photos of the accident which were circulated on the internet. Many posted reminders to be careful when driving, others expressed their thankfulness that Li was not in life-threatening danger. Fans also wished Li a speedy recovery and requested she rest well.
Li was fortunate that the accident wasn’t fatal. Otherwise, she may not have made it to her 34th birthday which falls on 22nd October. The actress is known for her roles in “Water Margin (新水浒传)”, “The Foliage (美人草)” and “Detective Dee (神䉼狄仁杰)”.
There is no news on how her injury will affect the actress yet. Hopefully, it will heal well without leaving any permanent marks. For now, we hope she gets better soon!
