Samuel Johnson has been rushed to hospital after being hit by a car on his way to visit family.
The actor’s eldest sister, Hilde, shared details of the incident on Johnson’s ‘Love Your Sister’ Facebook page.
“I wish I didn’t have to tell you this,” she began.
“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. 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.”
Johnson and his late sister Connie established the ‘Love Your Sister’ charity in 2012, with the aim of raising $10 million for cancer research.
Connie suffered from bone cancer at age 11, uterine cancer at 22, and breast cancer at 33. She passed away in 2017 at the age of 40.
