Prescott was hit by a cement truck while walking across a street in Brooklyn, New York, on September 7 of last year.

The actress suffered breaks in two places in her pelvis, as well as her legs, a foot and her left hand, according to E! News.

She also was in danger of becoming permanently paralyzed due to her injuries, although the intervention of her health care professionals prevented her from the condition. Her sister Megan revealed that the star had been released from the hospital and was allowed to recover at home on October 1. 

Prescott’s last Instagram post prior to being injured was shared to her account on August 31st.

Her note began by thanking a woman for giving her a rock after she was hit. 

‘An anonymous woman, whose face I never saw, put this rock into my hand as I was being lifted onto a stretcher. She whispered into my ear that it was for good luck,’ she recalled.

Prescott then expressed that she had inadvertently kept the rock with her while she was being checked into a hospital for treatment. 

‘When I finally got to the operating room and was being prepped for my first surgery, one of the assistants asked me what was in my fist. I realized I had been holding onto it since then without realizing,’ she wrote.

The A Dog’s Journey actress went on to express her gratitude for the anonymous individual’s kindness and for the work of her physicians.

‘Thank you to that woman (if anyone knows who she is, please tell me) and to all of my amazing nurses, doctors, physical/occupational therapists and surgeons at NYP and Mount Sinai,’ she wrote.

Prescott made a point of thanking her sister, Megan, who previously went public about her ordeal with being allowed to enter the United States in order to care for her sibling after the incident.

The 30-year-old actress, who is a native of the United Kingdom, was previously barred from traveling to the country due to coronavirus-related restrictions, although she was approved after making her situation widely known. 

‘Thank you to my sister for moving heaven and earth to get to me during a global pandemic and travel ban. Thank you to all of my friends for being there, without hesitation, and for sending your mums, friends and sisters when you couldn’t,’ she said.

Prescott also made a point of expressing her gratitude for the optimism of her roommate while she recovered from her injuries.

‘Thank you to my hospital room mate for being who you are and for making me laugh, even when there wasn’t much to laugh about,’ she wrote.

The actress concluded her message by thanking all of the people who assisted with her recovery process. 

‘Thank you to everyone who has reached out and helped in every and any way they could. From the bottom of my heart, thank you,’ she expressed.
