Derek Hough and Hayley Erbert are grateful for life after being in a scary car accident before the holidays.

The couple shared a video documenting the aftermath of the incident earlier this month, which saw paramedics called and Erbert receiving stitches on his face.

“On December 12th, Derek and I were in a pretty scary car accident in the mountains,” they wrote in a joint statement on Instagram on Friday. “Our accident involved a steep hill, icy roads, a tree and, worst of all, the fear of sliding off the mountain.”

In the video, Erbert is seen looking bloodied and bruised as she is stitched up by a doctor at the hospital. They also filmed the car accident scene, where paramedics and firefighters helped with the rescue.

Erbert, 28, looked terrified as she sat in an ambulance, but Hough, 37, cheered her up later by buying lots of snacks from the supermarket to eat for dinner.

“What do you do after you’ve been in a car accident? Go to the emergency room, get stitches,” Hough says in the video as she films Erbrert all sewn up and in her pajamas. “We treat ourselves to snacks.”

They ate ranch-dipped pizza, chips, and an assortment of pastries.

“What a night,” said Hough, with Erbert adding, “One of the saddest things about this night is that I can’t chew candy because it hurts because of that area. Disappointment.”

Hough noted that one of the “scariest” parts of the accident was that Erbert doesn’t remember anything.

“The scariest part is that Hayley doesn’t remember anything. She was stunned afterward, cheerfully saying we should keep going to dinner as blood trickled down her face. It really scared me. She woke up 20 minutes later when firefighters arrived,” Hough recalled in the post’s comments section.

Despite their injuries, the pair said they had a lot to be thankful for after being rescued by rescuers.

“Given the circumstances, we have a lot to be thankful for. First, that there were no other people involved. Second, the rapid response of the paramedics,” they wrote.

They also noted that his injuries were minor, writing, “we’re both fine” and Erbert “only came away a little bruised, with a swollen face and four stitches above [her] eyebrow.”
