Kathryn Prescott: Skins star seriously injured after being hit by cement truck in New York
Skins actress Kathryn Prescott has been left with life-changing injuries and is “lucky to be alive” after being hit by a cement truck in New York, her twin sister has said.
Kathryn starred in Skins alongside her twin sister. Her sister Megan Prescott said her twin has suffered life-changing injuries and has had multiple surgeries. Some injuries include broken legs, broken pelvis and is said to have only “narrowly avoided paralysis”.
“After fighting through complex surgery some of Kathryn’s injuries include: broken pelvis in two places, both of her legs, her foot and her left hand,” Megan said in a post shared on Instagram and Twitter.
“She is incredibly lucky to be alive. She narrowly avoided paralysis. The doctors are hopeful that she will make a full recovery but this will only be possible with the correct care right now.”
Megan is attempting to get to New York City to be with her sister who is there alone and will need help until she can walk again. But due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, she is not allowed to travel, despite being double jabbed and having taken a PCR test.

British nationals are currently not allowed to enter the US from the UK.
In her post shared on Thursday, Megan said: “I need to be there to help her with literally everything as she will be able to do incredibly little by herself. She will be in rehab for a very long time and will need 24/hr care even after she leaves the hospital.
“I applied to the US embassy for exemption from the current restrictions banning any non-US citizens into the US and was denied earlier today and I am devastated.”
Kathryn and Megan appeared in the British drama Skins in 2009 for series 3, they played twins Emily and Katie Fitch.
