Richard Hammond airlifted to hospital following horror crash in Switzerland
Former Top Gear host Richard Hammond was involved in a serious crash after his car flipped over and caught fire.
He was attending a car race in St Gallen, Switzerland, when he suffered the crash.
The 47 year old was filming scenes for the Amazon series, The Grand Tour.
Hammond, who was previously in a dangerous car crash in 2006, is now being treated in hospital for his injuries.
Richard, who presents The Grand Tour with Jeremy Clarkson and James May, is said to have fractured his knee.
An Amazon spokeswoman told The Sun: "Richard Hammond was involved in a serious crash after completing the Hemburg Hill Climb in Switzerland in a Rimac Concept One, an electric super car built in Croatia, during filming for The Grand Tour Season 2 on Amazon Prime, but very fortunately suffered no serious injury.
"Richard was conscious and talking, and climbed out of the car himself before the vehicle burst into flames.
"He was flown by Air Ambulance to hospital in St Gallen to be checked over revealing a fracture to his knee.
"Nobody else was in the car or involved in the accident, and we'd like to thank the paramedics on site for their swift response.
The cause of the crash is unknown and is being investigated."
