Jordan and Leandro Penna escape Argentinian car crash

Katie Price says she’s ‘lucky to be alive’ after the car she and boyfriend Leandro Penna were travelling in crashed on a remote Argentinian road.

The horrifying accident, which happened at the weekend, left 2 horses dead and the vehicle a mangled wreck.

Leandro, 25, was driving when the horses ran into the 4×4 car’s path.

‘It was absolutely terrifying,’ Katie, 32, tells the Mirror.

‘It all happened in a flash and I have absolutely no idea how I wasn’t badly injured.

‘I feel so lucky, but more than anything I’m just distraught about the horses. It was so upsetting.’

Katie, who’s a keen horse rider, is said to have suffered cuts and severe whiplash, while model Leandro – who reportedly slammed the brakes on and swerved to try and avoid the animals – jarred his neck. 

‘I’m so lucky to be alive @leandro__penna saved my life and the others in the car he is a hero to us for this,’ Katie, 32, Tweeted last night.
