Andrew Flintoff got into a car crash while filming for BBC's Top Gear show | BBCFormer England captain Andrew Flintoff was involved in a car crash while filming for BBC's TV Show 'Top Gear' and was hospitalized for the same. The 45-year-old was filming with a crew at Dunsfold Park Aerodrome in Surrey on Monday (December 12) when the accident occurred.

As per reports, Flintoff's injuries aren't life-threatening and the former all-rounder was driving on the track as normal and not driving at high speed. He was given medical care before being airlifted to the hospital.

"Freddie was injured in an accident at the Top Gear test track this morning - with crew medics attending the scene immediately. He has been taken to hospital for further treatment and we will confirm more details in due course,” the BBC said in a statement.

This is the second time in recent times Flintoff has been involved in a mishap while filming for the show. In 2019, he walked away safely from a 125mph crash, admitting later that he had gone a few lengths too far.
