The Ex Top Gear host has been involved in another serious crash, while filming for the new series of The Grand Tour. Hammond was airlifted to a local hospital after the accident in Switzerland, where he is receiving treatment for his fractured knee.
In a video statement Hammond has apologised to his wife for once again putting himself in a life-threatening situation.
Hammond was on a practice lap in the Rimac Concept One when the car left the track and flipped. Hammond managed to get out of the wreck just before the car burst into flames, probably not a good bit of publicity for the Rimac Concept One.
Just after the incident his co-star Jeremy Clarkson took to social media and tweeted that “it was the biggest crash I’ve ever seen and the most frightening but incredibly, and thankfully, Richard seems to be mostly OK.”
