Marvel actress Carrie Bernans was hit by a car while celebrating New Year’s Eve in NYC, and graphic images show the gruesome extent of her injuries.
In pictures that her mother Patricia shared on Monday, Carrie is seen bloodied and attached to machines while she is in the hospital. When Carrie and her friend stopped at a food truck, according to her, a car crashed into them, knocking Carrie unconscious and pinning her underneath.
Carrie, who starred in Marvel films “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Endgame,” sustained fractures and broken bones. Her mouth is bloody, and her face has been cut multiple times. She also has several chipped teeth.
Three NYPD officers were among the nine other people who were injured in the collision at West 34th Street and 9th Avenue, which was deemed a mass casualty incident due to its severity.
The 44-year-old driver, contacted by the police at 1:40 AM on Monday, is currently being held at Bellevue Hospital. It’s believed the police were chasing the car before the crash.
Despite the horrific collision, Carrie’s mother requests that everyone remember her daughter in their prayers as she recovers and maintains a deep sense of gratitude for life.
