Thursday firefighters gathered at the fairgrounds to congratulate Cal Fire's Volunteer Of The Year and one tough fireman.
He was hit while putting out a car fire.
Hinds told KMPH news, "Out of nowhere this pickup come through and takes out both me and my captain. I got the worst of it. It just barely hurt him. I had multiple fractures in both legs.
I had 18 ribs broke and this right arm broke," he said.
"If everything goes all right and I come back I probably won't come back 100 percent there might be some impairments and I might have to work around that stuff and everything but I plan on coming back," he said.
