After a frightening crash during filming for Top Gear in the United Kingdom, England cricket legend Freddie Flintoff was reportedly airlifted by a helicopter to hospital.
The Sun reported that the crash occurred while The Sun was filming in Surrey for a BBC programme.
After the shock at Dunsfold Park Aerodrome, the 45-year-old was flown to the hospital.
Flintoff was apparently injured while cameras were rolling to get him his opinion on a particular car for the show’s review segment.
Flintoff was filming behind the wheel when the accident occurred. On-site medical personnel at Cranleigh were quick to Flintoff’s aid.
Sources close to the father of four said that his injuries weren’t life-threatening despite the fact that he was flown by helicopter to the hospital.
His co-star Chris Harris, who presented the show along with Flintoff and Paddy McGuiness, was also present at the Top Gear track.
The Sun was told by a source that Freddie is currently in hospital following a Top Gear crash.
He was just driving as normal on the track. He was not going at high speeds; it was an accident that could occur to anyone.
“All safety and health precautions were taken for filming.
“Freddie was quickly taken to the hospital by an air ambulance.
He is currently receiving treatment for his injuries, which aren’t life-threatening.
“Filming is now postponed, and everyone cares about Freddie recovering.”
According to a BBC spokesperson, Flintoff was injured in the accident and was taken to the hospital for further treatment.
According to a spokesperson, “Freddie was hurt in an accident at Top Gear test track this morning – crew medics attended the scene immediately.”
“He was taken to the hospital for further treatment. We will confirm more details as soon as possible.”
After a terrifying 124mph crash in 2019, the cricketer’s smash is now the latest setback to the cursed show.
Freddie, a three-wheeled bicycle car with three wheels, was heard screaming, “I Can’t Stop!” as he sped down a runway only inches from the ground.
Flintoff was named the new host for Top Gear along with Chris (47) and Paddy (49).
After 18 years, the host trio proved to be a hit, and the show was moved from BBC Two on BBC One to a primetime slot.
