Lad hit by lorry lives
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.”
