PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Radio DJ Rob Riccitelli is back on air after a horrible accident just 3 weeks ago.

Rob was run over by a truck while cycling to work nearly a month ago. He suffered a number of broken bones, including his collarbone, every rib on the right side of his body and a few on the left, his pelvis, tailbone, and foot, along with a collapsed lung.

Rob returned to the air yesterday from the comfort of his living room thanks to a set up from his radio station, WCYY.

He says the support he's gotten from his friends, family, and radio station listeners has helped him recover, but he still struggles to walk. He also has a message for everyone on the road, "Whether you're riding a bike or driving a car, both people have this huge responsibility to be careful and look out for one another."

Rob is expected to make a full recovery.  He hopes to be back in the studio sometime next week.
