An actor on a daytime soap is recovering after being beaten and hit by a car on Thanksgiving.

CBSLA.com reports that Corey Sligh, who has played a bartender and waiter on CBS’s “The Young and the Restless,” was walking with his girlfriend, actress Alisa Berhorst, when he confronted two men speeding in a West Hollywood drug store parking lot. Sligh, who was preparing to take a Thanksgiving meal to a friend, told the men to slow down, but instead they slammed their car into him and then attacked him, according to the report.

Sligh, 27, ended up in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with a broken arm and other injuries. Two suspects have been arrested.
