Boyd, with two rounds to the chest and another across his scalp, said he didn't realize he was injured until he felt a trickle of blood running down his forehead.
The driver of the car was Evan Spencer Ebel, who would later become the chief suspect in the fatal shooting of the Colorado prisons chief earlier last week.
Boyd credited his lanky frame and protective vest for saving his life.
"I just got lucky," he said.
