Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff Taken To The Hospital Following An Accident During A Top Gear Filming

“Freddie was hurt in an accident at the Top Gear test track this morning – with crew doctors visiting the scene immediately,” a BBC representative stated in a statement.

Andrew Flintoff was transported to the hospital after an accident while shooting a Top Gear episode.

The former England cricketer, known as Freddie, was hurt during the incident at the Top Gear test track on Tuesday morning, according to a BBC spokeswoman.

The statement said, “He has been brought to the hospital for additional care, and we will reveal more details in due time.

The Sun said that Flintoff was in Surrey’s Dunsfold Park Aerodrome filming an episode for the show.

According to the newspaper, the 45-year-old was driving at the moment, and before being taken to the hospital, doctors hurried to help.

According to a source who spoke to the newspaper, Flintoff was “driving on the track as normal” and wasn’t moving quickly.

They said that he is undergoing care and that his injuries are “not life-threatening.”

In 2019, Flintoff made his Top Gear hosting debut alongside Chris Harris.

At the time, he said: “You don’t get the chance to work at two of your favorite occupations very frequently, but I’m now fortunate enough to say that I will. I’ve always had a love for automobiles, so I’m thrilled to be joining the Top Gear crew.”

According to The Sun, Harris, who co-hosts the program with Flintoff and Paddy McGuinness, was also at the Top Gear test track when the incident occurred.

Since starting to work on the program, Flintoff has been involved in accidents before.

He collided with a market stand in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, in February 2019, causing a minor incident.

Then, in September, while filming for the program at Elvington Airfield in Yorkshire, he crashed once more while operating a three-wheel vehicle at an estimated speed of 124 mph. He was uninjured and was able to leave the scene.

Richard Hammond, a former Top Gear presenter, was seriously injured in an accident at the same airstrip in 2006, which put him in a coma.

Flintoff had a very successful international career, most notably in 2005 when he helped England win the Ashes for the first time in 18 years before helping his team reclaim the trophy four years later.
