Richard Hammond’s horrible car accident would have made anyone swear off fast cars altogether, but not the 42-year-old TV presenter himself.
And now Richard was found in yet another car accident, this time on the set of his new show. His show is called Crash Course, which seems fitting after Richard flipped his car in the air twice.
Thankfully, unlike his previous car accident on his 288mph dragster back in 2006 that left him with near-fatal brain injuries in the hospital, the TV presenter remained unhurt this time.
Crewmembers rushed to help him out of the car, but he emerged and was pictured smiling after the incident, a clear indication that the TV presenter is certainly not afraid of risky stunts. This makes him the perfect match for his new show. In fact, for one particular stunt, Hammond was shot walking in a fireball, after which the TV presenter came out all aflame with a big smile on his face. He was immediately safely extinguished afterwards.
For another stunt, the host threw himself off the 6th Street bridge downtown and was caught by a huge inflatable.
His only unlucky stunt was his 2006 accident, which occurred during the filming of his former show Top Gear. Richard was on a Vampire jet-powered dragster that spun out of control. He had to be cut free and airlifted to the hospital. He was conscious and complained of back pain. He remained at the hospital for five weeks but had suffered certain after-effects such as memory loss and depression.
