“It could have been a lot worse, she had cuts and bruises, but it could have been fatal, she was incredibly lucky. It was a brand new Range Rover, she didn’t have it for long. It’s almost a miracle she doesn’t hurt herself more. “
They added that the road it was traveling on had an “incredibly tight turn” and the car was “stuck in the tree”.
Sheridan had driven in incredibly icy conditions as Storm Arwen wreaked havoc with winds of 60 mph.
His accident would have been enough to break a large branch from a tree, and local farmers had to help police get to the scene by cutting parts of a second tree.
It comes after ITV recently responded to Sheridan’s behind-the-scenes misogynistic argument on The Jonathan Ross Show.

The actress allegedly claimed that the atmosphere was “chauvinistic” and that she was not treated with kindness, while she was backstage on the show.
The 40-year-old star appeared alongside singer Gary Barlow as they promoted their new Christmas carol collaboration – and she was seen smiling throughout.
But Sheridan reportedly threatened to fire staff amid a heated argument after the talk show ended.
She was a guest alongside actors Stephen Merchant and Ruz Ahmed with the Big Sting and Grand Tour star Jeremy Clarkson also on the couch.
The Sun reports that the Funny Girl actress was livid backstage after not being treated with “kindness.”
“Sheridan was absolutely pissed off when Jonathan Ross was finished filming,” the source said.
“She said the atmosphere was chauvinistic and there was an air of misogyny. She also claimed that she felt that she had not been treated with kindness. ITV responded to the information in a statement.
The network said, “When booking the show, we always want to make sure that we are diverse and inclusive for everyone. We treat our guests with courtesy and respect at all times. “
A representative for Jonathan Ross told The Sun, “Sheridan seemed to be having a good time on the show but seemed to get flustered afterwards.
“Jonathan asked her if she was okay and she said, ‘Don’t worry, it’s not you.’ So Jonathan assumed it was a personal matter between Sheridan and the group of people she had come with.
“We will investigate immediately. I hope Sheridan knows that we would never take a complaint like this lightly. “
Sheridan has yet to comment on the reports.
