London, Aug 4 (IANS) Actor Ryan Reynolds says he was left in a coma for three days when he was 19 after being hit by a drunk driver.

The 34-year-old “Green Lantern” actor was partying with friends in his hometown Vancouver, Canada. As they were walking home, he was struck by a driver who had been consuming alcohol. Reynolds had to be rushed to a hospital.

“When I was 19, I was drinking… I was at a bar and I had a few drinks and I thought, ‘You know what I’m going to do? I’m going to leave my car here, be responsible.’ And I started to walk home. And I was hit by a drunk driver,” contactmusic.com quoted Reynolds as saying.

“Broke every bone in my left side… I woke up three days later. And I remember my dad sitting there… (with) a vomit tray. And I guess I had been heaving in my unconscious. And nothing says love like painting someone with three-day-old Gin Rummies. Just soaked the man head to toe in my vomit,” he added.
