Richard Hammond smashes his Morgan Aeromax Supercar!


The BBC presenter was apparently involved on a four-car incident at the Over Roundabout on the A40 near Gloucester.

The star, who escaped death in 2006 when his jet car crashed at 288mph, was believed to be in his £110,000 Morgan Aeromax at the time of the latest smash.

The accident on Saturday lunchtime is said to have involved a BMW 3 Series, a Volvo V40, and a Nissan Almera, as well as the Morgan. Gloucestershire police said they could not confirm or deny that Hammond, known as The Hamster, was involved. But a spokesman said there was a “damage only” accident involving four cars at the roundabout requiring no action from officers. The presenter is believed to have been on his way home from a flying lesson nearby when the accident occurred.

An eyewitness told the Mail on Sunday: “Richard was at the back of the line and he received no damage to his rear end but the front was in a pretty bad way. “Everyone got out and exchanged details and there was some good-humoured banter exchanged by the drivers after they realised it was him.”

The BBC said the presenter had been involved in a minor collision and was unharmed.

    I glad that he is okay. The man sounds like he has 9 lives. First the airplane crash and now this accident. He’s a lucky one to have survived so much misfortune.
