Radio host Chris Evans flips TukTuk injuring two people during his CarFest festival

Radio host Chris Evans flips TukTuk injuring two people during his CarFest festival

The two passengers sustained 'minor injuries' and were treated by on-site medics

Chris Evans managed to flip over a TukTuk, leaving two female passengers with ‘minor injuries’.

The 57-year-old radio and TV personality was at his annual CarFest festival, which raises money for children’s cancer charities, when the incident unfolded.

Evans was not hurt in the incident but was seen helping the passengers out before on-site paramedics gave them a once-over.

In a statement, a CarFest spokesperson said: “This morning at CarFest the TukTuk which Chris Evans was driving overturned on the track as Chris changed direction.

"The two passengers on board had minor injuries and the CarFest on-site medical team attended to support. Richard Hammond was not in the vehicle at any time.”

Former Top Gear host Hammond was in attendance at the festival, which was held at Laverstoke Park Farm, near Basingstoke in Hampshire.

LADbible has contacted Evans' reps for comment.

The incident comes after Evans announced that he had been diagnosed with cancer.

Speaking on his Virgin Radio show on Monday (21 August), he disclosed that he had been diagnosed with skin cancer and that he is due to start treatment within a matter of weeks.

Evans explained how he was hopeful it was 'completely treatable', as the cancer was caught early.

He said: "We need to discuss what's going on with this issue. It is a melanoma.

"There's this phrase called a malignant melanoma - you know once you get something and you find out all about it - that is a redundant phrase because if it is a melanoma it is malignant.

"But it's been caught so early, just so you know, that it should be completely treatable.

"[Treatment] will happen on the 14th of September."

The British star - who ran the London marathon this year - said he wouldn't be able to run for a month after treatment, adding: "I can't run for a month afterwards so I'm going to do nothing but run until then. Is that OK?"

The dad-of-five has spoken previously about having a skin cancer test back in 2020, having become worried after finding marks on his body before Christmas.

He said at the time: "I went and had a few marks on my body inspected by a skin expert before Christmas and she said, ‘You need to come and see me again, just because of your complexion.’”

Evans added that the expert had told him he had 'nothing to worry about', but advised he get checked out once a year.
