The truck mechanic who was hit by a truck in a trucking disaster in Texas is helping out his community by running a free bike ride through his community.
He’s also saving lives.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Austin-based Kyle Givens was riding his bike on his way to work when he was hit.
He suffered injuries to his face and back and is expected to make a full recovery.
Givens told the news outlet that his family and friends were in disbelief at the accident.
He said that he was doing some basic work on his motorcycle when he suddenly felt a sharp impact.
He immediately lost control of his bike and it slid down a steep hill and hit a tree, causing him to hit his head.
The tree also fractured his neck.
He said he was forced to call 911, but he was unable to call for help due to the crash.
He is currently waiting on an ambulance to take him to the hospital.
Givers said he plans to continue to run the bike ride until his insurance company pays out the $1,600 he is owed for the damage.
“I’m trying to do the right thing, not only for myself but for my family and community.
I don’t want to go through this again,” Givers told the paper.
