TV presenter and ex-TopGear host Richard Hammond has been airlifted to hospital after crashing an electric car while filming in Sweden in the run up to a race for The Grand Tour, an Amazon Prime show.
Thankfully witnesses said that Hammond climbed out of the car himself moments before it caught fire, a fractured knee and a bit shaken but mostly OK despite such a horrific crash.
The show have released a statement that reads “Richard Hammond was involved in a serious crash after completing the Hemburg Hill Climb in Switzerland in a Rimac Concept One, an electric super car built in Croatia, during filming for The Grand Tour Season 2 on Amazon Prime, but very fortunately suffered no serious injury.”
This is the second lucky escape the TV presenter has had involving high speed car accidents after the jet powered car he was driving in 2006 spun out of control at 288mph, an incident that left him with depression, paranoia and prone to other mental health issues. #LuckHammond
