“I’m a very very lucky boy,” said Josh Kent, 22, of Springwood.

“I am so thankful for the ambulance crew, paramedics and police but incredibly grateful to the highway maintenance blokes who stopped and called the emergency services for me.”

But he was less than enamoured with those motorists who passed by without stopping.

“I’m not so thankful to the four cars that merrily drove past me without a care in the world though,” he said. “Either way I’m cut, bruised and sore but alive and walking - someone’s clearly watching over me up there.”
