Flintoff injured in 124mph crash filming at track where Hammond almost died

FREDDIE Flintoff miraculously walked away from a 124mph crash while a filming a race for Top Gear on the track where former presenter Richard Hammond also dodged death. The cricket legend is not th…

The cricket legend is not thought to have been seriously hurt in the high-speed smash at RAF Elvington in North Yorkshire.

A source said the 41-year-old walked away from the incident and is "absolutely fine" following the crash on Tuesday.

"It will look more ridiculous than dangerous when you see it on TV."

"Tuesday’s filming at Elvington Airfield was no exception - but he suffered no injuries as a result of his spontaneous detour, as fans will see for themselves when we show the sequence in full in the next series.”

Its right tyre blew as he tried to set a speed record at 288mph at the RAF base near York.

After retiring from the sport he was brought in to host Top Gear after Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson and James May left, and a new team of presenters also stepped down.

In another Top Gear stunt, Flintoff revealed he thought he had killed McGuinness when he crashed a hearse.

Hammond was also airlifted to hospital in June 2017 after cheating death in another horror crash.

Hammond revealed he thought he was going to die during the smash, describing the experience as like being "inside a tumble dryer full of bricks".
