Real World bad boy “Puck” David Rainey is recovering in the intensive care unit after a near fatal car crash that severely injured him and his 8-year-old son.
In an exclusive interview from his hospital bed, Puck admitted he had been drinking prior to the accident.
“I had two shots of Jack Daniels but I ate a sandwich with it,” Puck said. “They tested my blood alcohol and it was .03% which isn’t even wet reckless.”
On March 19, the Real World star was driving to a fishing trip with his son Bogart when he says a deer jumped in front of his 1988 Ford Festiva causing their car to careen off a 40-foot ravine.
“We did two flips down a little hill and we were upside down,” Puck’s son Bogart told RadarOnline.com.
Bogart suffered a contusion on his liver, a bruised kidney and intestines and a bruised lung. Puck sustained a broken clavicle and broken neck. He says Bogart saved their lives by managing to squeeze through a window and flag down a car for help.
Puck, 41, who has battled alcoholism for years, said he was arrested at the hospital and charged with child endangerment.
“My son is the hero of the story,” the former bike messenger turned actor said amid tears. “I felt really guilty having my son go for help but he was able to roll down the window and flag a car who was able to call an ambulance.”
