Richard Hammond, who used to host Top Gear, has been airlifted to an hospital following a horrific crash in Switzerland.

Reports cite that the crash happened after he flipped his supercar worth more than  £2million and it burst into flames.

The incident happened while he was filming his new Amazon show called The Grand Tour.

Gian Andrea Rezzoli, a Police spokesperson confirmed that an injured driver was rushed to a hospital using an Air Ambulance. It is not reported how serious the injuries are or if they are life-threatening.

A source speaking with The Sun told:

 “The crash was really bad. The car completely flipped and then burst into flames. There was real concern for Richard but the emergency services were quickly on hand and he’s a very lucky boy. It brought back horrendous memories of the 2006 crash for those who witnessed it.

We wish Richard a speedy recovery.
