She said: ‘Accidents happen when you least expect them.
‘Luckily, I was able to walk away with a few stitches, fractured elbow, broken toes, severe road rash and a very sore body.
‘I don’t want to imagine what the case would have been without my helmet! I won’t hang up my scooter keys just yet… but I’m definitely aware of the importance of cruising safely!’
She posted both before and after photos and said: ‘BEFORE PHOTO: had an amazing day exploring the island of Mallorca with my crew mates by scooter! But it didn’t end as nicely as it started….. #mallorca #spain #adventure #daysoff.’
For the after photo she commented on how important helmets are when riding a scooter. She said: ‘AFTER: on Instagram we usually share the pretty stuff but this is the important stuff – I’m sharing this to express the importance of always wearing a helmet. Mine quite literally saved my life.’
She also thanked the crew of the ship who helped her and saw that she was taken care of. She said: ‘I spent the premiere night in a hospital bed after having a mean accident on my scooter.
‘I’ve been riding scooters my whole life and was familiar with the equipment, wasn’t drinking and was 10 minutes from my boat.
‘They flagged down a car who happened to be an off-duty police officer and he started giving me medical attention until the ambulance arrived.’
She added: ‘They also took care of getting all my stuff and scooter sorted!’
