X Factor star Lloyd Daniels is thanking his lucky stars after escaping an horrific car crash.
Just five weeks after passing his test, the 17-year-old singer was knocked unconscious and suffered whiplash, bruising and burns after crashing his new Mini.
His £13,000 car was written off after the accident, which happened moments after Lloyd gave a lift to his fellow X Factor hopeful Lucie Jones.
Lloyd was taken to hospital for x-rays, where it was said he was lucky to be alive.
"We just thank God it was not much worse," says Lloyd's mother.
"He is a really careful driver. He has only just passed his test so he wants to look after his licence and not get any points.
"He's still recovering. He's got quite bad whiplash, his chest is all bruised and he was in shock. He was really upset."
