“All things considered I am lucky to be alive you know,” Doyle said.
The entire incident was caught on a dashcam video and uploaded to YouTube.
Doyle said he was on his way to a book signing and was was trying to beat a yellow light at Second and Mission streets, but he never got past the intersection.
“It was just bang, bang and according to them I flew through the air and I landed up in the intersection,” Doyle said.
