Richard Hammond, part of the Amazon Powerd TV Show, The Grand Tour, has been in a serious car crash according to multiple news organizations. The Sun, Mirror and Daily Mail are following a Swiss newspaper in reporting an accident.
Jeremy Clarkson has just tweeted to say that despite the enormous crash Richard appears to be OK.
It was the biggest crash I’ve ever seen and the most frightening but incredibly, and thankfully, Richard seems to be mostly OK.

The Mirror reports “a fiery car crash in a Swiss mountain race” and says Richard suffered serious injuries “when the car crashed on a road that was closed for the Bergrennen Hemberg race” as part of filming the Grand Tour.
The story is based on a report by 20 Minuten, which says he was driving a white Rimac Concept One, an exotic high-performance electric sports car made by Croatian manufacturer Rimac Automobili.
