Freddie Flintoff crashes while filming Top Gear
Top Gear presenter, Freddie Flintoff has had a minor accident while filming for the car show at Elvington Airfield near York yesterday. This is in fact the same place where Richard Hammond crashed in a jet powered car which almost took his life.
The details are very faint but it appears to be that Flintoff ran out of runway while driving a three wheeled vehicle on the runway. Reports say that he walked away from the accident completely unscathed and and will continue filming today. Flintoff said, "I go to great lengths to make sure I do well in Top Gear drag races but on this occasion I went a few lengths too far! It will look more ridiculous than dangerous when you see it on TV."
The vehicle he was driving was apparently a motorised three wheeler known as a Time Bandit. It is essentially a trike. It is a good thing he is safe and was able to walk away with no injuries.
