Whoa!!!

Richard Hammond, the former host of the infamous Top Gear television show, was injured and closely escaped a far worse fate when his race car crashed on Saturday in Switzerland and burst into flames.

The 47-year-old driver was racing today in a segment for his Amazon Prime show, The Grand Tour, when his electric car lost control and flipped down over a hill.

Luckily, Hammond was able to climb out of the car before it burst into flames — he allegedly suffered a fractured knee, and was airlifted to the hospital, but based on the completely charred and burned-out car that was the result… things could have been worse.

Here's video from the apparent crash, showing Hammond losing control right before a turn on a hill (below):

Wow!!!!

Pretty wild stuff — just glad Hammond wasn't severely injured.
