Richard Hammond

The former "Top Gear" host was involved in a near-fatal car accident in June, 2017. The mishap occurred when Hammond lost control of his electric Rimac Concept One, often described as world’s first electric supercar, while completing the Hemburg Hill Climb in St Gallen, north-east Switzerland. The car veered off the road and flipped, but Hammond escaped in the nick of time as moments later the vehicle burst into flames. The 47-year-old, who was shooting the Season 2 of "Grand Tour," was airlifted to a hospital, where he is being treated for a fractured knee. Hammond has an accident-prone history, having survived at least two near-death instances in the past six years.
