Supermodel Tyson Beckford tells Oprah of auto accident

Supermodel Tyson Beckford is the remarkable face of Ralph Lauren's Polo lineSpeaking yesterday of gorgeous models (re: Tyra Banks), today's F.S.G.H. (i.e., Fabulous Specimen Grabbing Headlines) is to-die-for Tyson Beckford, who appeared on Oprah today. The teary-eyed Ralph Lauren Polo hunk talked about the horrible auto accident he experienced in June in New Jersey, which could easily have ended his career -- not to mention his life.

Tyson divulged to Oprah that he'd bizarrely thought about just staying put in his pick-up truck once it happened, despite seeing flames around him and the hood being flipped up on the windshield. But something told him it wasn't his time to go; he had to fight to get out. It seemed to him that God waited for him to clear the vehicle because the moment he did, a series of explosions erupted, sending flames towering higher than the nearby street lamps. What apparently hurt the model-turned-occasional actor most, though, was the other driver having left the scene. Who would do something so callous, even to a stray dog?

Tyson has a sexy, rugged role in Zoolander, starring Ben Stiller.  What a fun movie!Biker Boyz is another flick in which supermodel Tyson Beckford demonstrates his acting chops -- this time in an action role.

Gorgeous chin up, Tyson. You're still here and in perfect shape to carry on. Just more mature and newly appreciative of the importance of celebrating every second of your life.
