British actress Kathryn Prescott, a star of the popular UK series “Skins,” suffered serious body injuries after a truck hit her in New York City on September 7.
In an Instagram post, Megan Prescott, the 30-year-old twin sister of the actress said her sister was trying to cross the street when the truck hit her.
Megan said her sister suffered a broken pelvis in two places, both of her legs, her foot, and her left hand.
She said despite her injuries, her sister is alive and is now undergoing treatment at an NYC hospital.
“She is incredibly lucky to be alive. She narrowly avoided paralysis,” Megan said.
Megan who is currently in the UK is feeling bad since the US Embassy has denied her request for an exemption from current travel restrictions.
At the moment, only U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents may travel from the UK to the US, with few exceptions.
“She is alone in New York with no family members. I need help getting to New York to support her recovery,” she said.
