In the April 2012 Bop Magazine, Jennette reveals one of her scariest moments of her life when she was only 12 years old. Below is the entire article written by Bop Magazine.
As the clock struck midnight on Jennette McCurdy’s 16th birthday, the iCarly star dreamed about celebrating with her family – but NOT about getting a driver’s license. While most 16-year-olds can’t wait to grab the keys, Jennette reveals a scary car accident when she was 12 made her want to wait to hit the road.
“It was so terrible”
Seven years later, Jennette, who’s now 19 remembers everything about the accident and tells BOP the chilling details. “Someone hit [my family and me in our car] and the airbag went “poof!” it was really, really scary,” she remembers. Seconds after the accident, Jennette knew she was hurt – that’s when the ambulance arrived. “I had to be put on a stretcher and I heard [paramedics] saying, “She’s got temporary paralysis in her left arm,’ I couldn’t feel my whole arm.” Soon after the accident, Jennette’s arm healed – but that night is one of the reasons she waited to get her license until just months ago. “Ever since then, I’ve wanted to take it really slow,” she admits. Today, Jennette’s totally dealt with the accident and bought her first car (a white Mini Cooper!) late last year. She spills that she’s a careful driver, but she loves cruising around Hollywood. “I drive myself to the iCarly set,” she says. “And my car is so cute!”
