Samuel Johnson seen for the first time since being hit by a car in June


Samuel Johnson spent over a month in hospital after being hit by a car and suffering head injuries on June 14. 

On Friday, he was seen in public for the first time since the ordeal, and appeared to still be on the mend, looking frail and unsteady on his feet as he excited a car wearing a neck brace. 

The Gold Logie winner, 43, was assisted by his older sister Hilde Hinton, who collected him into an embrace.

The siblings had met at Hilde’s home before Samuel left the area with a mystery woman. 

The Molly actor didn’t appear to be fully healed up as yet, his movements still a tad slow and stuff. 

He was dressed in a comfortable tracksuit with a shirt underneath, as well as a cap, and the thick neck brace.

Some two months earlier, Samuel had been being struck by a car while riding on his bicycle. 

Hilde first revealed news of the accident news in mid June, writing on Facebook: ‘I wish I didn’t have to tell you this. Early Saturday night Sam was on his way to visit family when he was accidentally hit by a car.

‘Our Ambos got him picked up and tucked away safely in hospital in record time. I followed them in.

‘The fantastical medical staff are in overdrive taking care of his sore head,’ she added.

‘He’s awake and not too happy that he doesn’t have his pants – nobody loves a hospital gown. Hearing his voice is lovely, but can’t wait for hugs when it’s safe. 

‘I’ll keep you updated,’ she concluded the post, which was shared alongside a photo of Hilde hugging a stuffed toy.

On August 1st, Sam revealed that after around six weeks in hospital, he was back home.  

The actor-turned-philanthropist shared the good news with his fans on his charity, Love Your Sister’s Facebook page on Monday.  

‘Woot, I’m home! So, I got into a dust-up with a small white vehicle, and lost badly!’ he began, sharing a photo of himself with his sister Hilde.

‘Huge props to the gang at Ambulance Victoria, VicPol, The Alfred and The Epworth for putting this Humpty back together again.   

‘Won’t bore you with all the medical stuffski, suffice to say I’ve been surrounded by a gang of experts, including the Occupational Therapist, who says it’s OK for me to go back to work on “light duties” today!’

Despite being released from hospital, Samuel revealed he was still recovering from the accident, and would have to wear his neck brace for another four weeks.

‘When you’ve been hit by a vehicle, little or otherwise, it can take a while to un-wonk yourself,’ he continued. 

‘Full recovery is within my grasp, I’ve just got a lot more work ahead of me. I feel very lucky to be OK, but I’m worried about what cancer is getting away with whilst I am on the mend.’

Samuel started the charity, Love Your Sister, back in 2012 with his late sister, Connie, who succumbed to breast cancer in 2017.
