A 23-year-old woman is recovering from minor injuries after a full-sized pickup truck ran over the woman's head in Gainesville.

The Gainesville Sun reports that Brittany Taltos was sunbathing Sunday afternoon when a truck, driven by a man named Taylor Greer, ran over her head.

According to the paper, the 23-year-old and her twin sister, Erica Taltos, made an appearance on the hit TV reality show "Jersey Shore" while studying abroad in Italy. The twins also briefly appeared on ABC's "Bachelor Pad."

Gainesville Fire Rescue said Greer heard Taltos scream and drove the truck forward.

Taltos was airlifted to an area hospital. She received 15 stitches on the right side of her head. She also has bruises and ear canal damage.
