Jeremy Clarkson Hurt in a Top Gear Car Crash

Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson has had a miraculous escape in a high-speed car crash. There’s not much info on the crash just yet, but apparently it wasn’t nearly as bad as Richard Hammond’s 315 mph rocket car crash back in 2006.

It was a high speed, head on collision during filming for the show, but Clarkson suffered only minor injuries to his legs, hand, and back. He described it as his first serious road traffic accident in 31 years.

Clarkson said “My right index finger looked like a burst sausage, my left shin was fatter than my thigh and my back felt like someone had driven over it with a pile-driver.”

Still, he has the life.

    Excellent. This makes it sound like an accident.

    This was in fact when he deliberately drove a massive lorry through a brick wall!

    How about you put a date on your posts? :-)

    That would be nice. When did this happen? Recently?
