The actor says she's sustained serious injuries after her friend's car crashed into two trucks

Mathira's New Year's celebrations were cut short by a 'horrible' car accident in Dubai, according to her latest updates on Instagram.

The actor-model-singer revealed that she survived a crash involving her friend Sara's car and two trucks! Yikes.

Posting a photo of herself in a neck brace, Mathira said that she feels 'blessed' to have been 'saved'.

Speaking to Images, she shared that she has suffered three rib fractures and a dislocated jaw and has been admitted to Dubai's Rashid Hospital.

"I hurt from my neck to my back," she said. "But I want to go home."

Talking about how the accident occurred, she shared that a truck hit their car from the back, causing one tyre to burst and the car to spin out of control on a busy highway where it smashed into another truck. She added that their car was about to be hit by a third vehicle "but the Land cruiser driver took a risk and [swerved] to save us. God bless that person."

The Naagin star shared videos of her and Sara chatting and singing in the former's car before the accident and said that "bad eyes" (as in, nazar) and "ill wishers" caused her harm.

Despite her brush with death, Mathira appears to be in high spirits and is promoting her new show on Bol TV.
