Brittany Taltos, who appeared on episodes of "Jersey Shore" when the cast went to Italy, was run over by a truck while sunbathing in her front yard on Saturday in Florida.
"I honestly thought I was going to die," Taltos said.
Taltos was lying in the grass with headphones on when a pickup truck backed up into the yard and rolled partially over her head, causing damage to her ear canal and a gash which required 15 stitches to close. She was rushed to the emergency room but is expected to make a full recovery. The driver was not cited.
Taltos and her twin sister Erica both appeared on "Jersey Shore" and made brief appearances on the show "Bachelor Pad".
