As Shylah now fights the battle of her life, Daily Mail Australia may reveal that the Melburnian was involved in a terrifying accident in January 2021 when she flipped a car on Western Ring Road after colliding with a truck and a car.

She was not wearing her seatbelt and was thrown from the car onto the road.

Shylah survived the accident, but required significant rehabilitation to recover.

Backed by the support of her parents, she managed to walk again.

His grueling road to recovery came after another serious car accident in 2019.

Shylah Rodden made no secret that she was a free spirit enjoying a good time.

The young woman is no stranger to overcoming tough obstacles in life.

When she was 18, she found herself in bad company, which led her into a seedy world of drugs and evil.

‘Live life loose,’ he wrote on his arm at the time.

With the help of a loving family, the teenager turned her life around.

He got a new job, sought professional help for his demons, and vowed to make new friends.

But the road to recovery is bumpy, and it wouldn’t be long before Shylah found herself on one again.

Caged in a cell, isolated from her loved ones, Shylah had reached what she believed had been the crossroads of her life.

It was 2017 and she was once again committed to getting clean and living the life she no doubt dreamed of as a child.

The demonic ice would not allow it.

In February 2019, Shylah was involved in a serious car accident, but things went from bad to worse.

In January of last year, Shylah suffered shocking injuries when she flipped a car on Western Ring Road after colliding with a truck and a car.

On the road to recovery, and just two months before she hit the roller coaster, Shylah faced another hardship with the death of her beloved brother Jason.

“Dad sat me down and told me my brother had passed away,” she wrote in the weeks before her accident.

“He wasn’t just my older brother, he was my best friend, my everything, the person I looked up to and inspired me to be.”

The day she was to be hit again, Shylah was working at a friend’s booth at the fair.

They had been on a break when the couple decided to go for a few walks to kill time.

The Rebel Coaster (above) opened just days after Tuesday’s incident and Shylah’s family criticized the move as “shameful.”

Shylah is understood to have dropped her phone while on the roller coaster.

Video obtained by Daily Mail Australia shows passengers were forced to take their belongings on the journey with them.

Police believe Shylah walked on the tracks of the high-speed ride to retrieve her phone.

A Melbourne Royal Show spokeswoman said “the safety and well-being of our show visitors remains our number one priority.”

Security watchdog WorkSafe is in the process of determining whether that claim is true.

The roller coaster that hit Shylah reopened just days after the disgusting incident.

Show management declined to comment on whether new security procedures have been adopted in the wake of this.

Daily Mail Australia understands that WorkSafe did have some concerns about how the roller coaster worked.

Whether that amounts to criminal charges is unknown at this time.

As is Shylah’s medical condition, who has managed to miraculously cling to life.

Ms. Rodden (above) received “horrible” facial injuries in the incident and her family said they are not sure how she will recover.

Police revealed on Monday that the roller coaster was traveling at 70 km/h when it was hit.

Horrified families watched as paramedics treated her for serious facial injuries at the scene.

Shylah’s father, Alan Rodden, told Daily Mail Australia that his daughter had suffered life-changing injuries.

‘Obviously I can’t talk to my daughter. She is going to be in a coma for quite some time,” she said.

The wounds are horrible. Horrific. She has brain damage. It is the pelvis, the arms, the legs, the back, the neck; there is almost nothing that is not broken. I just can’t understand how the hell so much damage has been done.

Even doctors have said they haven’t seen anything as bad as this in a long time.
