On New Year’s Eve, RHONJ star Kathy Wakile has confirmed that her son Joseph was in a car accident while the rest of the family was moving into their new home in Franklin Lakes, NJ. Kathy explains that Joseph swerved to miss a deer, but ended up hitting a tree.
“The Jeeps roll, so he rolled it over,” Kathy told the Daily Dish. “He climbed out and got out, thankfully, without a scratch. And the deer was safe and Joseph was safe. And we met every rescue worker in the neighborhood and they were so wonderful. And they welcomed us to the neighborhood with a quick response and made sure everything is OK and, thankfully, he’s OK. What a way to end an old year.”
But Joseph isn’t feeling nervous about getting back behind the wheel. “We made him drive that evening, As soon as we knew he was OK, we made him get back in the car right away,” she said. “He’s a good driver; he’s a great driver and [there’s] no sense in making him get hung up on it.”
