If you don’t remember this season on 16 and Pregnant, Alexandria Sekella was the small town girl who tried to deal with a boyfriend who had some major drug issues throughout the episode. It was sad to see it unfold the way it did, and it appears that life caught up with Matt McCann as he was involved in a life changing accident last night.
Alex Sekella, who will appear on Teen Mom 3, announced to twitter that her ex boyfriend was involved in an accident and is in ICU. “The Ashley” followed up the story and confirmed he is indeed at Lehigh Valley Hospital with a broken neck and broken bones in his spine. I would naturally assume this is going to leave him with some sort of paralysis, but that has not been confirmed yet.
In a tragic turn of the story, his friends were apparently racing to get help, but were allegedly driving drunk and ended up hitting a tree, killing one and injuring two others. I did digging on the friends, and the one who passed away appears to also be a young mother, and the two injured just started dating recently. This is incredibly sad part of the story if indeed they are linked, which they appear to be.
This is a truly unfortunate event for everyone involved. I know Matt was considered a lousy father, and rightfully so, but he had/has a chance to change his ways and end up back in his daughters life. No father starts out perfect, especially when they were completely unprepared for fatherhood. Hopefully he pulls through and is able to be in Arabella’s life in the future.
