Byline: Kathleen Speirs

A Paisley teen who was given a one per cent chance of survival after being crushed by a van has spoken out about his miraculous recovery.

Sam Cameron was left in a coma for two months after being run over in Wellmeadow Street in his hometown following a night out in 2016.

The horrific road accident left him with a fractured skull, multiple broken bones and a serious brain injury.

The gutsy teen, 19, learned to talk again before finding his feet and taking steps that stunned doctors.

Yesterday, he spoke out for the first time about his life-changing injuries and remarkable recovery.

The former St Andrew's Academy pupil told the Paisley Daily Express: "To think I had just a one per cent chance of surviving and looking at where I am now is crazy."
