Richard Hammond Crash in Switzerland with the Rimac Concept One – Video
Let’s get the most important bit of information out of the way first: Richard Hammond is fine. He suffered a fractured bone in his knee, but is otherwise “conscious and talking,” according to an official statement from The Grand Tour. The Rimac Concept One he was driving, however, is another story entirely. It’s a goner.
As you can see, the electric car ended up on its roof and burst into flames, but thankfully not until after Hammond was able to exit the vehicle. He was airlifted to a hospital in Switzerland. “The cause of the crash is unknown and is being investigated,” according to a statement. Hammond, along with co-hosts Jeremy Clarkson and James May, are currently filming season two of The Grand Tour on Amazon Prime.
