"FREAKING indestructible" are the words Kurtis Ensbey used to describe his sister Katie McKean who, after being hit by a car while jogging, took her first few steps.

Four weeks after her accident, 12 broken bones, one collapsed lung and numerous other injuries later, she can stand up.

Katie's mum, Noela Ensbey, said the family was over the moon with her progress.

"She is going amazingly well - even the hospital is amazed with her recovery," Mrs Ensbey said.

Katie is now able to stand with a moon boot on one leg, that allows her to put pressure on it, with one crutch and the support of someone holding her.

She now waits for a free space at the Princess Alexandra Hospital Neuro-rehabilitation unit.

"There she will go through memory rehab, and her memory is coming back slowly," Mrs Ensbey said.

She said Katie was on the road to a speedy recovery.

"She's still got a neck brace on and a broken arm and leg but she is getting better every day."

Kurtis' Facebook was filled to the brim with good wishes for his sister and the caption beneath the photo of him with Katie reads: "this is Katie 'freaking indestructible' McKean, 4 weeks ago she got hit by a car while she was jogging, breaking 12 different bones, collapsing a lung, and causing various other injuries, today we went for a walk".
