Lad hit by lorry lives

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A TEENAGER mirac­u­lously sur­vived af­ter he was cat­a­pulted more than 100ft through the air when a lorry col­lided with his car – and he didn’t even break a bone.

Sam Clarke, 19, broke down on the A46 near Coss­ing­ton, Le­ics, but man­aged to pull over his Range Rover and get out.

Sec­onds later he was hurled through the air af­ter a huge 42-ton lorry clipped the tail of his car, send­ing it smash­ing into him.

But in­cred­i­bly Sam, from Hinck­ley, Le­ics, es­caped death with just two black eyes, a sore knee and bruis­ing.

He was taken to hospi­tal and re­mark­ably just needed a few stitches to a gash on his head.

His mum Caro­line said: “He was so close to death. Just hours af­ter a 42-ton lorry crashed into him he was walk­ing. It’s a mir­a­cle.”
