Richard Hammond has been airlifted to hospital after being involved in a horrific car crash in Switzerland.
The former Top Gear presenter allegedly flipped a £2 million pound car while filming for The Grand Tour. To make matters worse, the car burst into flames upon impact.
Hammond infamously sustained brain injuries after a horror crash back in 2006 when he crashed a 288mph car.

Speaking to The Sun, one of Hammond’s spokespeople explained:
The crash was really bad. The car completely flipped and then burst into flames.
There was real concern for Richard but the emergency services were quickly on hand and he’s a very lucky boy.
It brought back horrendous memories of the 2006 crash for those who witnessed it.
Hammond is currently recovering in hospital.
