I Hydroplaned

"I hydroplaned on the road and hit the back of this red truck." Murphy Martin, 16, singer/guitarist with the band Muff, was on the road on a rainy February 19, heading north.

"I dented the back of his bumper. We pulled off to the side of the road to exchange information. As we were doing that, this Marine named Mike pulled over to make sure we were okay. The next thing I know I was laying 30 feet away in the mud in a fetal position. Mike came over and told me I was hit by a car and that I flipped two and a half times in the air."

An ambulance took Martin to Scripps La Jolla, but he was released that day.

"I didn't break any bones. I'm going to have surgery. They will set a date when the swelling goes down. They are going to completely replace the ACL tendon. It is a common sports injury. Junior Seau had it."

Muff (www.muffrocks.com) appears Saturday, 5 to 9:30 p.m., at the Shack of Horrors in Oceanside (www.shackofhorrors.tk) with Hellfire Trigger, Kill City, and the Triumphant Return of the Pink Robots; free admission, all ages.
