A beautiful woman shared her story on how she lost her model looks, eyesight, and friends after a horrific car crash allegedly caused by her ex-boyfriend.
Maria Lebedeva, 23, is struggling to recover despite being in pain day and night after the crash —which has left her with brain damage and memory loss.
Maria was once known as the “most beautiful in her university class” and told her story about her situation in an effort to raise money for medical costs.
Before the car crash that changed her life in her home city Novosibirsk on 20 August 2016, she is happily living her life.
But now, she said that her friends have deserted her because she gained a lot of weight and lost her old sparkle.
“You know, I loved traveling, not staying at home. I was into dancing and running,” Maria explained. “It hurt me so much when I disappeared for everyone.”
“Now I realize I didn’t have many friends, I had many acquaintances,” she said. “I miss my independence the most. I feel blind when I walk with a stick, I can hear how people pity me, especially old ladies. I feel defective.”
“I can hear better than I could before the accident – and sometimes it really annoys me, the things I hear,” she added.
Maria said that when her former friends see her now, she is unrecognizable. She graduated with honors – and hoped to become a lawyer.
Unfortunately, she can hardly remember anything from a two-year period after the car crash.
Maria, known to her friends as Masha said that she can’t remember her life in 2016 and 2015, and said that it’s ‘entirely gone’.
The car crash left Maria with brain damage as well as spinal and pelvic injuries. She was in a coma for ten days.
The accident was caused by her fuming boyfriend of four years, named Andrey because she was half an hour late for a ride home in his car.
“I was late and when I came he was angry. When I got in the car, he was yelling at me,” she recalled.
The police found Andrey had jumped red lights in his BMW 530 and struck an SUV at 50 mph. He and a friend were saved by airbags.
Maria was the only one injured, and at first, Andrey came to see her in hospital, but later her parents were forced to sue him for medical costs.
“He wasn’t there for me when I needed his support. He told me: ‘Do you think I am the only one guilty of this accident? We are both guilty,” Maria said. “I was so angry when I heard that. It was as if he didn’t feel guilty at all. He didn’t regret or apologize, it is disgusting to remember”.
