A pedestrian who was hit by a van and sent into the air says he is lucky to have escaped without being seriously injured.
Dan McIntyre, 25, walked to Subway to ask for a job when he didn't look right before he crossed an afternoon on Herbert Street in Waipukurau, New Zealand on Sunday afternoon.
Mr McIntyre was hit by the white van, but luckily he ran away with only a sore leg and a few scrapes.
He uploaded images of the incident to Facebook, which were recorded on CCTV cameras at a nearby gas station, and said he & # 39; did not see that coming & # 39 ;.

& # 39; I was on my way to Subway to talk to them about a job I was doing this week and I literally forgot to look for a way, and then left to run and ended up for a van, & # 39; he told the Hawke & # 39; s Bay today.
Mr. McIntyre said he doesn't remember much about the accident, but he knew he was hit by a vehicle.
& # 39; I have not seen it at all. It just touched me. I just felt that the impact hit me from the side and the next thing I knew I was on the ground, but it threw me a long way. & # 39;
& # 39; I have made some good hits over the years, but this was something else & # 39 ;, he said on Facebook.
He was taken to Hawke & # 39; s Bay Hospital and was fired that night around 6:30 pm.
Mr. McIntyre tracked the recordings from the gas station and was intrigued to get a full picture of what happened to him.
Mr McIntyre was struck by the white van driving down the street, but luckily he walked away with only a painful leg and a few scrapes.
& # 39; I was quite surprised by how far I was thrown. I just can't believe I'm in no more pain than I am, & he said.
Mr McIntyre visited the driver on Monday because the accident was his fault and he wanted to apologize for any damage to the van and scare the driver.
Mr. McIntyre thanked the public and emergency services that helped him on Facebook.
