After an accident on “The Grand Tour”
Moderator James May is “absolutely fine”
James May suffered a car accident on ‘The Grand Tour’. Now he speaks up: “I’m absolutely fine.”
James May (59) apparently suffered an accident on “The Grand Tour” set. The British media reported that including the “Sun”. Accordingly, a stunt went wrong and May drove a car into the wall of a tunnel. He is said to have been traveling at around 120 kilometers per hour.
According to the report, James May raced through a tunnel at a Norwegian naval base with his colleagues Jeremy Clarkson (62) and Richard Hammond (52). May braked too late and crashed into a rock face. Paramedics extricated him from his Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII and took him to the hospital for brain scans and X-rays. He reportedly fractured at least one rib in the accident. A day after the incident, the all-clear was given and he was able to return to filming.

In 2006, Hammond was in a coma for two weeks after another accident.
