(The Scarborough) – A Scarborough man who had a 30 per cent chance of survival after being hit by a speeding car has been shortlisted for a national award for his efforts to help prevent accidents on the road.
Brooke Trotter, who was a university student at the time of his injury, suffered a brain haemorrhage, fractured skull and several facial fractures.
He now travels the country delivering speeches to raise awareness and reduce the incidence of brain injury on behalf of the emergency services and will be recognised at an annual awards luncheon as one of just three finalists in the UK in the running for the title of Alex Richardson Achiever of the Year.
“It’s a big honour to be recognised for an annual award,” said Brooke. “When I started my public speaking journey it was to help other survivors, not for the recognition so it means a lot. CONTINUE
