In 2005, while attending the Berlin Film festival in Germany, Reedus was out driving when he was struck by an 18-wheeler truck and nearly lost his life. He was thrown through his car's windshield and had to undergo several facial reconstruction surgeries during his recovery.

“I had to have multiple surgeries because your face will break in a series of ways, and I was down to the second to the last break,” Reedus said on Inside The Actor’s Studio. “I kind of looked like a hamburger.”
