Hammond survived a fatal crash back in 2006 when he lost control of a jet-fueled car at a speed of 460km/h. He suffered brain damage and almost died. He was in a coma for two weeks and survived the horrific crash.

Hammond was knocked off a motorcycle during the filming and fell hitting his head. He lay unconscious on the road in remote Mozambique miles from medical help.

Speaking to The Sun Jeremy Clarkson said, "He really did hurt himself quite badly." Another source added, "Richard was travelling quite fast when he came off. It caused instant horror on set."

The sources further revealed that Hammond's crash was a matter of concern for the team If the injuries were serious than it would have been tough to get medical attention as it was a remote place with only necessary facilities.

The whole team was shaken by Hammond's incident as the previous crash was still fresh in their mind. When asked whether Hammond was taken to the hospital, Clarkson replied in typical fashion, "We don't do hospitals."

It is not confirmed whether Hammond's was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. It is expected that the accident will be featured in the series two of the Grand Tour show.
