Richard Hammond, the former host of the mega-popular car show Top Gear was almost killed in a car accident this past weekend. Looking at photos from the scene, cannot believe he escaped with minor injuries.
The accident occurred in Switzerland, where Richard in the next edition of “The Grand Tour” with Jeremy Clarkson and James may. As it became known, Hammond lost control of the vehicle and went off the road. Rolling over, the car caught fire. Richard managed to get out of the burning vehicle and personally (!) scare the onlookers away from the burning car. All together, nor watched burns two million pounds of iron.
After, from his hospital bed, Richard wrote that he was alive (some unscrupulous media immediately scared fans of Hammond, he died from his injuries). The presenter thanked the Swiss doctors for the “new knee”, my colleague James may for a bottle of gin that helped him cope with stress, and also apologized to his wife mindy and daughters Izzy and willow for being so much frightened by them.
We wish Richard a speedy recovery!
