This is what I found on PEOPLE.COM:
When Jack Keith was driving home in his truck after a surfing session last May, he was gazing out at the Pacific Ocean when he suddenly, and accidentally, hit a cyclist driving alongside his vehicle on the Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach.
Tom Sovilla had been biking from La Habra to Seal Beach on May 25, 2019 and was taken to the hospital by ambulance after the nearly fatal crash.
“It happened so fast, I don’t know where everything was, but all I remember was Tom flying through the air, like 30 feet, and I just freaked out,” Keith recalled of the moment he hit Sovilla to KTLA 5.
According to the outlet, Sovilla was in the hospital for 33 days. He was treated for a fractured back, broken pelvis, torn knee ligaments, bruised intestines and two brain blood clots, according to the UCI Medical Center.
Sovilla and his wife, Jenette, contacted Keith just five days into his hospital stay.
“Holding on to things just eats away at you. It doesn’t necessarily hurt the other person,” Sovilla told KTLA. “I think if people can understand that, then people would learn to forgive, because forgiveness is a big part about your own mental and physical health.”
