The first day of spring started out much like any other day for Jay Wilson.

But it would end with a trip to the hospital and a prayer of thanksgiving that although he was sore, no bones were broken and he was going home to his family.

Wilson, 43, who with his wife, Kristin, owns Appliances and More, was back on the job Thursday after being blindsided by a driver who police say was under the influence of drugs and alcohol when her Ford Aerostar van rammed Wilson’s pickup truck as he prepared to get into it.

Wilson was finishing up a service call at Fifth and Campbell streets when he was hit at about 1:25 p.m. Wednesday.
