Richard Hammond, BBC Top Gear.

BBC Top Gear co-presenter Richard Hammond said he thought he was going to die after he lost control of the Vampire jet powered car, at 288mph, when the car flipped over while he was filming a feature for the show, on an RAF airfield near York, last September.
Hammond, known as "Hamster", suffered brain damage and was in a coma but is expected to make a full recovery.

Last month Hammond told Jonathan Ross in his first TV interview that he had no memory of two weeks of his life after the incident.

"I was driving and then it was two weeks later and I was in Leeds (hospital)," he said.

"Apparently I was awake on the way to the helicopter and I got a bit fighty, I wanted to do a piece to camera, but my eyes were pointing in different directions," he said of his trip by air ambulance to Leeds General Infirmary.

Top Gear

Top Gear is a British (BBC) motoring programme.
The presenters do all sorts of crazy things.......
Like going to Alabama, and baiting rednecks. If you drive a pickup, live in Alabama, and think all brits are commie faggots, maybe you'd better not watch this.......
