DENVER -- The walk from his hospital bed to where FOX31 Denver spoke with him is a short one , but it's one Jordon Sweaney calls a miracle.

“The people told me I went underneath the tire and underneath this big truck. I broke my neck, I broke my jaw,” said Sweaney.

He asked for his face to be blurred because he’s afraid and police still haven’t caught the man who hurt him. His body is full of deep cuts and bruises. He nearly lost his ear and he has limited movement above the waist.

Jordan remembers very little about what happened early Saturday morning.

“He was driving fast so I slapped his tailgate,” said Sweaney.  But the corner of 77th and Harlan will always remind him of the driver who drove by and dragged him.  “The guy pulled me into his truck and then he started going down the road at like 30 miles per hour.”

Jordan still wears the rosary he had on when the assault happened. Out of all of the plastic on his body the most important is the one hanging from his broken neck.

“That`s the only reason I`m alive right now,” he says.

Westminster police say they’ve had limited cooperation from witnesses in the case and so they don’t have a good description of the driver.

Anyone with information should contact Westminster police.
