Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff was airlifted to the hospital on Monday after a car crash. Despite being taken by air ambulance, a pal informed that the father of four’s injuries was “not life-threatening.” It is reported that all the usual health and safety measures were in place for filming too.

‘Filming has been postponed for now and all anyone cares about is Freddie recovering.’

Car accident:

The 45-year-old Flintoff was driving while being recorded for the show’s review portion. Former England Cricketer, Flintoff was filming while behind the wheel when the event occurred.

The accident happened once over while filming an episode of the BBC series at the Dunsfold Park Aerodrome in Surrey when it was 0 degrees outside. Freddie was taken to the hospital by air ambulance shortly afterward.

The local medical teams reportedly came to Flintoff’s assistance. Immediate, on-site medics from the facility near Cranleigh came to his aid. Chris Harris, who co-hosts Top Gear with Flintoff and Paddy McGuinness, was also present at the racetrack.

In 2009, Flintoff, having represented England in 141 limited-overs matches and 79 tests, announced his retirement from international cricket. He was a player in the Ashes series in 2005.

Flintoff’s previous accidents:

After losing control of a red Lamborghini in the Yorkshire Dales in 2020, McGuinness also avoided death. It follows the terrible crash that puts Richard Hammond in a coma during filming in September 2006.

Flintoff was heard terrified, saying, ‘I can’t stop,’ as he hurtled headfirst down a runway just inches off the ground in a three-wheeled cycle car in 2019.

In 2006, Richard Hammond lost control of a Vampire Dragster. Amazingly, Richard crashed the Vampire Dragster while traveling at 288 mph, leaving him fighting for his life. This happened while he tested the vehicle at the former RAF Elvington airbase.

Freddie disclosed in September of last year that he narrowly avoided serious injury during filming when his jet trike crashed at a high rate of speed. In the most recent episode of Top Gear, Paddy was forced to give up driving his Pontiac Firebird after the rear axle completely disintegrated.

When Richard tested the jet-powered car at the former RAF Elvington, he crashed it while traveling at 288 mph, leaving him fighting for his life.

Freddie revealed he had a tough escape following a fast-moving crash in a jet trike while filming in September. After his jet trike careered off the road during a race at the Elvington Airfield near York, the cricket legend, 41, said he was “totally OK.”

While filming the fast race, Freddie apparently careered his high-speed tricycle off the road. Freddie, who was dressed in a complete motorcycle suit and helmet for the sequences, was attended to immediately by the crew workers, but he emerged from the incident unharmed.
