Samuel Johnson is recovering in hospital after being hit by a car.

The Eden star’s eldest sister, Hilde Hinton, shared details of the incident on Johnson’s Facebook page on Monday evening.

“I wish I didn’t have to tell you this,” her post on the Love Your Sister account, which Johnson runs, 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.”

Hinton praised 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,” Hinton joked.

“Hearing his voice is lovely, but can’t wait for hugs when it’s safe. I’ll keep you updated. Hilde.”

Johnson and his late sister Connie started the charity Love Your Sister in 2012, ax they hoped to raise $10 million for cancer research.

Connie suffered from bone cancer at the age of 11, uterine cancer at age 22 and breast cancer at age 33.

She passed away in September 2017 at the age of 40, a day after being awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia.
