Man Run Over by Own Vehicle in Santa Ynez
I’m the man who was fun over by his truck on 9/4/19. I’m recovering at home and have 3 hip fractures, a broken rib and a laceration to my right knee. The doctors say I will make a full recovery in 8 weeks, I feel very lucky and fortunate to be alive and only suffered the few injuries that I have.
