The new trailer for the upcoming second series of ‘The Grand Tour’ from the former ‘Top Gear’ cast shows the moment before Richard Hammond was involved in a life-threatening crash.
Last month, Hammond was airlifted to hospital while he filming for Amazon’s ‘The Grand Tour’ in Switzerland when he lost control of his vehicle and it burst into flames.
Shortly after the crash, fellow host Jeremy Clarkson tweeted “it was the biggest crash I’ve ever seen and the most frightening but incredibly, and thankfully, Richard seems to be mostly OK”. Hammond meanwhile, later added that he ‘thought he was going to die in the crash‘.
“In fact that is what was going through my mind. I thought I’d had it,” he said, describing the experience as “like being in a tumble dryer full of bricks going down a hill. I was aware that I was up, that I was high, that inevitably the car was going to come down.”
