Richard Hammond in new car crash

Richard Hammond

Top Gear and Blast Lab star Richard Hammond is said to have escaped injury in a four-car crash in his supercar.

The presenter is thought to have been involved in an accident at a roundabout on the A40, near Gloucester, on Sunday, while driving his Morgan AeroMax car.

No-one was hurt in the smash, although Richard's £110,000 AeroMax car is said to have been badly damaged.

It's a different story to his famous accident in 2006, when he escaped death when his jet car crashed at 288mph.

Police said they couldn't confirm whether Richard Hammond, who's also known as the Hamster, was involved in Sunday's crash.

But the BBC said the presenter had been involved in a minor collision and was unharmed.
