Man pinned underneath truck on long road to recovery

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The man who was rundown by an alleged drunk driver who crashed through his home, spoke to News 8 about the accident that nearly took his life.

44-year-old Tony Vidaurri was seriously injured after a pickup truck slammed into his Escondido condo, pinning him underneath.

Two months later, Vidaurri continues to struggle along the path to recovery, but he knows the crash could have been much worse. Vidaurri's daughter also suffered minor injuries in the crash.

Despite everything that's happened, both Vidaurri and his wife say they are willing to forgive the accused driver, 23-year-old Brandon Morris. But they also say he has to pay the price for his mistake.

Morris, who has a prior drunk driving conviction, is due in court for a preliminary hearing Tuesday.
