'Modern Family' Star Says Adele Saved Her Life

Sarah Hyland owes Adele a special thank you. Not for getting her through a difficult break up, like so many fans of the British singer's emotional album 21, but for possibly saving her life.

The Modern Family actress, 20, credits the Grammy winner's song "Someone Like You" with indirectly keeping her from a fatal car accident.

Hyland told E! News that she and her boyfriend, actor Matt Prokop, were driving during a particularly heavy rainstorm on L.A.'s freeway last week when he temporarily lost control of the car.

"It was so foggy you couldn't see ten feet ahead of you," she said. "He had an audition and we were going through lines. He would have been focusing on remembering his lines (but) 'Someone Like You' came on the radio, so we blasted it to sing along to it. And then we hit a water pocket...The wheels turned to the right and locked and then it spun."

But somehow, Hyland explains, she and Prokop were uninjured despite spinning around in the car several frightening times.

"We were just really shaken up," she says, adding, "It's like, 'Thank you for saving my life!'"

Sounds like Adele has two more grateful fans in L.A.
