Travis Curry told authorities that two men broke into his rural Efland home around 10:30 a.m. The men hit him over the head, stuffed him into the trunk of his car, and then stole several pieces of electronics from his home.
Curry said he used a cell phone to call for help from inside the trunk.
"I tried to get a signal. That was hard," he said. "But, finally, one came in, and then I called 911."
Orange County sheriff's deputies responded and were able to get Curry out of the trunk. He suffered a serious head injury, deputies said.
No further information was immediately available.
