Coronation Street viewers are worried for Sam after a horrific car accident
Sam, played by child star Judd Riordan, ends up in the crash after his half-brother Simon Barlow (Alex Payne) is persuaded to lead him to a chess tournament. No one realized Simon had been drinking late and wasn’t supposed to get behind the wheel, and viewers watched in horror as he lost control and crashed into a barrier.
Although shaken, Sam seemed to walk away from the incident fairly unscathed. But he started to feel tired and later said at the café that he couldn’t drink the milkshake because he felt sick.

His words caught the attention of fans of the ITV soap, with many now convinced he has suffered a concussion and the situation is going from bad to worse. Some worry that Sam – the son of Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) and the late Natasha Blakeman (Rachel Leskovac) – may even die if his injuries are not discovered and dealt with.
Many took to X to discuss what happened after the episode aired. One concerned viewer posted: “Sam has a concussion… although we didn’t see him hit his head.”
Another spotted Sam rubbing his head in the background of the scene, writing: “Concussion coming for the little guy!” “Sam might be breaking down,” someone else said, and another commented: “Sam might be going through something, other than staying with Toyah I mean.”
“Oh dear Sam no,” another fan said. One of them pleaded: “Do not kill Sam. Simon could go but no Sam.” ““Sam is clearly not feeling well…” another Corey viewer wrote.
One viewer commented: “Poor young Sam, joins Coronation Street, loses his mother within weeks to a crazy gunman, fights off intruders with his telescope and now the local drunk is trying to kill him.” “I bet he’s glad he moved in with Dad.”
“Sam feels ill, I wonder if he had a head injury after the accident?” asked another concerned viewer. “Sam feels too sick to drink Roy’s milkshake after the car accident, and is seen in the background rubbing his head,” another person noted. “I think he suffered a head injury that went undetected. Are they going to kill Sam before Harvey comes back to torture the streets?”
