Matt Pinfield has one strong spirit — 4 days after he was brought down by a car, he’s telling the awful story from his hospital bed … and it’s pretty inspiring.
The ex MTV VJ — and current host of the radio show ‘Flashback’ was on TMZ live from L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai hospital … where he had several surgeries this week, healing from 2 broken bones, facial lacerations and a gruesome head injury.
Matt said one second he was crossing a street to his apartment, and the other he was smashed straight-up into the air by a fast-moving car. He says when he landed he looked down at his leg … which was abruptly pretzel-shaped.
The good news, as Matt put it, he’s “blessed to be alive.” Since the accident … he says he’s experienced an unbelievable outpouring of love and support — and it’s clear his deep-rooted MTV fans are still down with him.
Stay strong, Matt!!
