Anders on Battlestar Galactica and as Justin Patrick on the USA Network television series Fairly Legal. He also appeared on Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a regular guest star.

The vehicle flipped on an embankment, landed upside-down, and impacted Trucco's side of the car. Trucco was badly injured in the accident, fracturing four of his vertebrae. Luckily his friend walked away uninjured. He has stated that he initially lost feeling in his arms. He was finally able to get out of the vehicle after regaining the feeling in his hands and he used his cell phone to call for emergency help. He was airlifted to UCLA Medical Center for surgery by a team led by renowned spine surgeon Dr. Nick Shamie. The surgery was successful and doctors consider him lucky to have survived the incident.
