John Dodson is reporting he and his family are lucky to be alive, following a serious vehicle accident he was involved in on Friday.

Recently Dodson’s manager, Ricky Kottenstette, reported that Dodson and his family were recovering from the incident. Since then, Dodson shared out the statement below.

Just letting everyone know we’re all alive and no one is seriously injured. The car we hit was left in the middle of the highway after that person hit an 18 wheel and another car crashed into it as well. He had no Hazzards light, no flares and no other warning to let us know. I hit the car and we rolled. I don’t know how many times but luckily the cables in the median stopped us from rolling onto traffic going the other direction. The guy fled on foot after he saw my vehicle rolled.. I gotta thank infinite for the design of the suv cuz it protected my family and I from dying. We’re just lucky no one died and we can live to see another day and be reminded on how luck we are. Life is short and you don’t know when it’s gonna end so enjoy it while you can.

The 36-year-old Dodson (21-12) was scheduled to fight Cody Gibson at a July 30, XMMA card. A Go Fund Me page has been set up to help the family with their medical bills and other expenses.
