Roberts said that while he’s still in shock over the incident, he’s grateful that he didn’t suffer worse injuries.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office told KOIN that it is unlikely that the driver will be cited for any traffic violations because the incident occurred on private property.

Roberts just wants the incident to remind people to be aware of their surroundings at all times.
