Man trapped under truck for 10 hours continues recovery

Posted: Updated: Jan 14, 2013 05:43 PM

A Spring Hill man is recovering at home after being pinned under the cab of his pickup truck for nearly 10 hours.

In late October, Adam Moore, 33, fell asleep behind the wheel and flipped his truck in a dry creek near Luther Sharp Road in Maury County.

"I was in the middle of brush so I was trying to find a stick to dig myself out if you can believe that," said Moore.

Moore screamed for help every time a car passed but no one heard him until the next day when Matthew Hill and his fiancé' happened to be driving by.

"I looked at my fiancé and said, ‘Did somebody just scream for help?' She said, ‘Yeah, I think so,'" Hill told Nashville's News 2.

The couple called 911 and emergency workers were able to free Moore.

He says Hill saved his life.

"If it wasn't for them, how many cars drove by and didn't hear me or see me if he wouldn't have stopped it wouldn't have been that perfect storm. I may not have gotten out of this."

Turns out, Moore and Hill knew each other.  They were childhood friends but had not seen one another for 20 years.  The two men have reconnected since the wreck.

Moore not only survived but, amazingly, he escaped without any broken bones.  Some of the muscles in his legs were damaged.

The husband and father of three spent about a month in the hospital where he was on dialysis.

Moore returned home a couple of days before the Thanksgiving holiday.  He is undergoing physical therapy and is learning to walk again with the help of a walker.

Moore told Nashville's News 2 the accident has changed his outlook on life.

"There's so many other things that are important in life that little things don't bother me at all," said Moore.  

Moore says he will never take his family or another day for granted.
