Top Gear UK's Clarkson Injured in Head-On Collision

October 13, 2008

Jeremy Clarkson, one of the hosts of Top Gear UK (along with James May and Richard Hammond), was just injured in a head-on collision while filming an episode for the next series of Top Gear.

UK's Mirror hasn't been forthright with details as of yet, but Clarkson himself had this to say about the incident:

"My right index finger looked like a burst sausage, my left shin was fatter than my thigh and my back felt like someone had driven over it with a pile-driver."

Considering the past history of Top Gear presenter accidents, Clarkson's wife Frances brought some levity to the situation in interview yesterday when she simply stated: "My husband is fine." [Source: Motor Trend]
