Well-wishers have raised more than £900 for a 20-year-old motorcyclist who lost half of his leg in a horror crash on a north-east road.
When he came round in hospital, he realised that part of his right leg was missing.
Friend and former colleague, Wendy Bruce, has since set up a fundraiser online to help the qualified welder on his route to recovery.
In just under a week the page has raised more than £900 of its £1,000 target.
Ms Bruce said: “I thought it was important to help him however possible.”
Mr Trojakowski’s recollection of the collision on November 6 is clouded.
He told the Evening Express: “I woke up in a little room surrounded by my folk, including my mum and dad.
“I looked down and they said ‘do you know what happened?’
“I looked down at my leg and saw that I’m missing half my leg.”
The Oldmeldrum resident has since been inundated with hundreds of messages wishing him a speedy recovery.
Speaking about the incident, Mr Trojakowski added: “Some lovely lady pulled over to see what was wrong with me. I remember feeling a thud.
“Had the woman not stopped I would have bled out. I feel like this message applies to many people – be careful on the roads.”
