Philadelphia - Last week Marc Summers was involved in a crash during a taxi ride in rainy Philadelphia that resulted in several broken facial bones. He has since undergone emergency plastic surgery.
On Thursday Summers was riding in the back seat of a Philly cab when the vehicle hydroplaned losing control. During the accident Summers was thrown into the clear partition inside the cab face first. He was rushed to hospital where doctors quickly put his face back together during a 4 hour operation.
Summers told People Magazine, "Everything on the left side [of my face] from my eye socket down was just wiped out," he tells PEOPLE. "My eye socket got all swollen. I'm having trouble seeing completely out of the left eye ... There's lots of titanium and screws in my face."
At the time of the accident Summers was on his phone talking to his supervising producer at the Food Network. He told the producer just prior to the accident that the cab was going to crash.
Summers's family rushed to be by his side. The television host is expected to make a complete recovery and look good as new, once the swelling goes down.
While Summers is recovering it appears his fingers will be getting plenty of exercise. He has been Tweeting non-stop thanking fans and friends for their get well messages.
