Richard Hammond Reassures Fans After Crash Left Him Unconscious
Richard Hammond has reassured fans he's OK after he was involved in an accident while filming in Mozambique.
He was shooting for the second series of The Grand Tour when he came off his bike and knocked himself out.
After his horror crash in 2006, fans were, understandably, concerned for the Hamster. However, for those of you who were worried, he has taken to his website, Drivetribe, to let everyone know he's doing alright.
In a post titled 'I've checked and I'm not dead', he wrote: "It's true, I did fall off a motorbike whilst filming recently for The Grand Tour in Mozambique. I banged my head, yes, along with pretty much everything else apart from my left thumb, which remains un-bruised.
"Can't tell you more yet about the how and why of it; that's all for later in the year on the show. As for injuries; well put it this way, I don't think I can get a book out of it."
A source on set told the Sun: "Richard was travelling quite fast when he came off. It caused instant horror on set.
