We know Jason Priestley as the handsome young star of the long-running television show Beverly Hills 90210.

In an exclusive interview with 20/20's Barbara Waiters tend his,Priestley talked for the first time about the crash grueling recovery.
我们知道,詹神·普里斯特里是电视系列片《比夫利山90210》里年轻潇洒的影星。去年夏天,在他遭遇了一场惨重的赛车事故后,大多数人才知道他是职业赛车手。在20/20节目导生持人芭芭拉·沃尔特斯对其进行的独家采访中,普里斯特里次讲述了那次撞车事故以及后来艰难的身体康复过程。

Priestley's face was smashed almost beyond recognition. His feet and back were broken He survived thanks to a highly skilled rescue operation and his own din to live, but the experience left him a changed man.
普里斯特里的脸被撞得近乎面目全非。他的双脚和脊背骨折,多亏了当时医术精湛的抢救,以及他顽强的生命意志,普里斯特里才与死神擦肩而过,然而,这次经历令他变成了另一个人。

Throughout the 1990s. the charismatic 90210 star, who stood out for his boyish charm and sex appeal, led the life most teenage boys fantasize about Priestley's picture adorned the covers of countless magazines. and posters of him covered teenage girls' bedroom walls.
20世纪90年代,这位以俊朗的外表和性感的魅力而出众并极具号召力的90210电视系列片的明星.过着令众多青少年梦想的生活。普里斯特里的照片成为无数杂志的封面,他的大幅照片也被挂在少女卧室的墙上。

Last summer, he made the headlines again. This time the news was devastating. Priestley was close to death after the worst crash ever seen on the Kentucky Auto Racing Speedway When he woke up a day later, he had no idea what had happened. It was really quite shocking." Priestley said. describing his reaction when he first saw his injuries.
去年夏天,他再次成为媒体首要新闻人物。而此次的消息却令人肝肠寸断,普里斯特里遭遇了肯塔基赛车道有史以来最为严重的车祸,生命垂危。第二天,当他醒过来时,他对所发生的事情却一无所知,他说当他亲眼目睹自己的伤势时,他描述了当时的反应,“它真的很恐怖。”

More frightening, Priestley said. was the thought that he might not walk again He said he thought of Christopher Reeve. and of Sam Schmidt. a racing friend who was paralyzed after an accident "I was really, really terrified that that was going to be me."
普里斯特里说,一想到自己今后再也不能行走,就感到非常可怕。他还说他想到了克里斯多夫·李维,还想到了赛车的朋友萨姆·史密德,他在一次车祸后长年瘫痪。“我真的,真的很害怕这一次轮上了我。”

Priestley knew the dangers of racing; he' d been making at least part of his living racing cars for 10 years, tears roar around a banked oval track within inches of each other at speeds approaching 200miles per hour.
普里斯特里并非不了解赛车有风险,10年来他至少一直把赛车视为生活的一个部分。赛车奔驰在倾斜的椭圆形跑道上,车距只有几英寸,车速达每小时200英里。

Just 28 minutes after the accident, Priestley arrived at the University of Kentucky Hospital trauma center. Fearing the worst, family and friends gathered at the hospital. Luke Perry, his friend from 90210, was there within hours.
事故发生后,仅仅过了28分钟,普里斯特里就被送进了肯塔基大学医院外伤中心,家人和朋友都做了最坏的打算,守候在医院。从90210剧组来的朋友鲁克·派瑞几小时内也赶到了医院。

Priestley, 33, survived his brush with death on the race track, but the road to recovery was difficult. The accident forced him to face the very r9eal possibility that both his racing and acting careers would be over. Determined to prove wrong the reports that he might never walls again, he is making amazing strides.
33岁的普里斯特里在赛车道上与死神擦肩而过。然而,康复之路并非一帆风顺。这次事故迫使他正视现实。即他的赛车和演艺生涯者倒各终止。为了决心证明媒体称他不能再行走的报道有失事实,普里斯特里正迈出惊人之步。
