Sarah Hyland: ‘Adele saved my life’


Modern Family star Sarah Hyland has thanked British star Adele for saving her life. The incident occurred last week when 20-year-old Sarah’s boyfriend lost control of their car while driving on the Los Angeles freeway in a rainstorm. She said: “It was so foggy you couldn’t see ten feet ahead of you. “He had an audition and we were going through lines. He would have been focusing on remembering his lines [but] Someone Like You came on the radio, so we blasted it to sing along to it. And then we hit a water pocket…The wheels turned to the right and locked and then it spun.” The pair did spin several times but there was no damage to the car and they were uninjured. Sarah added to E! News: “We were just really shaken up. “It’s like, ‘Thank you for saving my life!’”
