Gold Logie winner Samuel Johnson in hospital after being hit by car

Charity founder and Gold Logie winner Samuel Johnson has been hospitalised after being hit by a car.

It’s understood the actor was struck by the vehicle on Saturday night.

The 43-year-old’s eldest sister Hilde Hinton shared the news on the Love Your Sister charity Facebook page overnight.


“I wish I didn’t have to tell you this,” the post 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.”

Hilde continued by praising the “fantastical medical staff” who she said are “in overdrive” taking care of Johnson’s “sore head”.

“He’s awake and not too happy that he doesn’t have his pants – nobody loves a hospital gown,” she wrote.

“Hearing his voice is lovely, but can’t wait for hugs when it’s safe”.
