Amazon Prime’s ‘Grand Tour’ host injured in fiery car crash


Richard Hammond, a co-host of Amazon Prime’s “The Grand Tour,” suffered a fractured knee — but miraculously no serious injury — during a crash in Switzerland while filming season 2 of the motoring show on Saturday.

This is the second time Hammond has been involved in a serious crash while shooting. The previous accident, which left him in a coma for two weeks, occurred during filming of the BBC’s “Top Gear” in 2006.

      That’s one badass crash to crawl away from.

        Yes, it looks like a convertible that rolled and burned.
        Not an easy wreck to get out of, especially when it’s on fire.

    Electrics have instant near infinite torque. Totally different car to drive. Stomp on the accelerator in a turn and you go squonky

    So I guess the battery caught on fire?

    These green cars are clearly safer than internal combustion. Plus I gather the smoke from this fire had no toxic chemicals in it either. Very green
