Professional surfer Sunny Garcia has been discharged from a California hospital Friday night after being involved in a head on collision in Orange Country.

Garcia is pictured on his Instagram account with a neck brace but says he didn’t suffer any serious injuries.

The former world surfing champion told us that the driver was texting and driving when the crash happened and that the Toyota Tacoma he was driving at the time was totaled but the truck’s airbags didn’t deploy.
