TULSA, Okla. – An Oklahoma man is recovering after he was hit by a car on Sunday evening.

According to KJRH, 37-year-old Jason Gambler was walking down the street near First and Rockford in Tulsa when he was struck by a car coming over a hill.

Authorities say Gambler was pushing a shopping cart filled with scrap metal during the accident.

Gambler was rushed to an area hospital, where doctors told KJRH they believe he will survive his injuries.

However, doctors were forced to remove both of his legs below the knee.

The driver of the car will not likely face charges because she was not under the influence, was in her correct lane and was not speeding.
