The Young and the Reckless actor Corey Sligh was attacked on Thanksgiving by two men in West Hollywood and is now recovering from his injuries, which have limited his ability to walk.

Sligh told The Wrap that one of the men ran him over in a Rite Aid parking lot before getting out and joining another man in physically attacking Sligh. The actor’s arm is broken and he will have to go through physical therapy in order for him to walk again. (He’s currently using a wheelchair.)

“It was pretty scary [being] on the hood of that car, but I’m happy to still be able to move my neck,” he told The Wrap“I’m happy to have the problem of relearning to walk instead of not being able to walk at all. I’m pretty blessed.”

And he even has a sense of humor about it: Sligh posted a screengrab of a Hollywood Reporter tweet about the attack with the caption, “Well, I guess I can finally say ‘I made the Hollywood Reporter!'”
