A gas station attendant said Wednesday that he's thankful to be alive after he was struck by a car.
Ronald Valle had just finished pumping a customer's gas at the 1A Auto Clinic in Walpole on Monday when a man, driving a Toyota Avalon, hit the gas pedal and slammed into Valle and the gas pump, which erupted in flames.
Valle was thrown more than 30 feet to the edge of a busy street, while co-workers rushed to douse the flames.
Valle was taken to Norwood Hospital and was recovering at home Wednesday with only bumps and bruises, though he said he is extremely sore.
"For one moment I thought, 'This is the end of my life,'" Valle told NBC 10. "I said, 'Oh God, forgive me for everything!'"
Valle said he believes the accident was just that, an accident, and doesn't hold any ill will toward the driver.
