Richard Hammond injured in Grand Tour crash in Mozambique

While filming The Grand Tour, Richard Hammond crashed his motorbike and hit his head in Mozambique.

It is not known whether Hammond was wearing a helmet at the time but Clarkson said that Hammond "really did hurt himself quite badly" and "he knocked himself out".

The former Top Gear trio, now filming the second season of their globe-trotting new Amazon Prime motoring show, had been filming in the southern African nation earlier this month.

The accident is still expected to feature in the second series of the Amazon Prime motoring show later this year.

In a post entitled "Yes, I fell off but yes, I'm fine".

According to The Sun: "Richard was travelling quite fast when he came off". They reportedly flew out to Mozambique earlier this month (Mar17), a nation where nearly a third of the population do not have access to advanced medical treatment. "Well, put it this way, I don't think I can get a book out of it". Jeremy Clarkson received a bit of road rash after crashing his moped on camera during another Top Gear special, this time in Vietnam.

In 2015, Hammond left Top Gear with James May after their co-star Jeremy Clarkson was sacked for punching a producer in the face. "They were all shaken by the latest incident", the source added.

And then there was Richard Hammond's massive jet dragster crash that occurred while filming Top Gear in 2006.

The incident has echoes of his serious vehicle accident during filming of his old show Top Gear in 2006.

The Grand Tour returns to Amazon later this year. He later revealed he suffered depression, paranoia, and memory loss due to brain damage.
