Your Yukon truck is no match for Brendan Witt, Warrior D

This used to be a nice Yukon. [Edit: For anyone confused: NO, that's not the one that hit Witt. He got up, you know.]

Shark attacks, truck attacks -- no problem.

Even if he's lost a step on the ice since his heyday, this is why so many fans love Brendan Witt:

Witt was crossing Arch street to get a cup of coffee when a gold Yukon truck made an illegal turn and hit the 34-year-old. Newsday says Witt tried to jump on the hood of the vehicle before being thrown to the ground as he was struck.

"I'm okay," Witt told the crowd as he dusted himself off, according to Newsday. "I've got to go play some hockey. I'm a hockey player. I'm okay. No big deal."

The story gets better, with on-looker's stunned reactions ("It was like Clint Eastwood"), in that TSN link (above) and Katie Strang's report at her Newsday Isles blog.

Of course Witt will still be in the lineup tonight. Like you expected any different?
