TV car show presenter Richard Hammond leaves Swiss hospital
Former Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond has left Switzerland in a private jet to the UK.
The TV presenter crashed a super car in Sankt Gallen last weekend while filming for the new Amazon show ‘The Grand Tour’.
The car rolled off the road and exploded – but Hammond was able to escape in time. Surgeons at the local hospital put pins in his knee.
He was taken to an airfield in an ambulance and got on the plane using crutches.
His co-hosts, Jeremy Clarkson and James May, both say when they saw the crash they were certain Hammond had been killed.
