Top Great host Freddie Flintoff & # 39; gets injured in 124mph crash while filming on SAME TRACK leaving Richard Hammond in a coma for two weeks & # 39;
Top Gear presenter Andrew & # 39; Freddie & # 39; Flintoff has revealed that he suffered a nasty escape after a 124 mph crash during filming.
The cricket star, 41, has insisted that he & # 39; be absolutely fine & # 39; is after his jet trike has escaped from the road during a race at the Elvington Airfield near York.
It comes 13 years after former Top Gear host Richard Hammond was flown to the hospital with serious head injuries when he crashed his car while filming on the same job.

Freddie would have driven his high-speed trike off the road when he filmed the high-speed race, but while crew members rushed to his rescue, the star barely jumped up.
The former England captain told it later The mirror: & # 39; I'm fine and was filming again today.
& # 39; I go to great lengths to make sure I do well in Top Gear drag racing, but on this occasion I went a bit too far.
& # 39; It looks more ridiculous than dangerous when you see it on TV. & # 39;

A spokesperson for Top Gear also confirmed that Freddie was fine after the close call and viewers will see the crash in the next series.
MailOnline has contacted representatives of Freddie Flintoff and Top Gear for further comments.
Freddie took over as host of Top Gear earlier this year, alongside Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris, and the trio was well received by those tough fans of the show.

The crash comes after Richard Hammond, 49, was left in a coma after a serious crash on the same number during filming in September 2006.
The presenter crashed on a jet-powered Vampire dragster vehicle while traveling at 288 mph and spent five weeks in the hospital recovering from his injuries.
Earlier this year, Richard also revealed that he suffered from post-traumatic memory loss and memory loss that was so serious that he did not even recognize his wife Mindy.
Mindy told The Telegraph: & # 39; It was disturbing when Richard looked at me from his hospital bed early after the crash and said: & # 39; You are beautiful, but you are not my wife & # 39 ;.
& # 39; When I corrected him, he replied: & # 39; No, you are not my wife, my wife is French & # 39 ;. When he was admitted home five weeks later, it became clear that Richard & # 39; s memory loss was not a short-term ailment. & # 39;
New face: Freddie has taken over this series as host of Top Gear alongside Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris
