The star of the Internet’s latest viral meme, Damn Daniel, was admitted to hospital after being hit by a motor vehicle outside his home. He is reportedly in a stable condition.

With life back at it again with those cruel twists of fate, the vehicle in question was a white van.

Witnesses say that Daniel wandered onto the road without looking after being distracted by his friend, and director of the ‘Damn Daniel’ series.

His friend supposedly shouting “WATCH OUT FOR THAT WHITE VAN!” to warn him, but Damn Daniel thought it was a remark about his fresh white Vans shoes and smugly walking out into the oncoming vehicle.

Doctors say he has no serious injuries but have kept him in overnight as they try and find the point of all this.
