    seems Richard has been involved in another nasty looking accident while taking part in a hill climb event in Switzerland.
    Driving an electric car he has left the road and dropped a considerable distance the car has rolled and is now a burnt out wreck.

    BBC article showing burn out car below.

    Early reports are he has suffered a fractured knee but got out himself and is otherwise generally ok :)

    Seems electric cars are not immune from becoming a burnt out wreck. (guessing there are still plenty of things that will run hot).

    Looks like a cool car "leave a like for a pray" is the most YouTube thing I've ever seen haha. Hasn't had much luck when it comes to experimental cars! Glad he's okay and I'm sure it'll make great TV when it's released

    Fractured knee!
    Mere flesh wound for that man.
    Bet he looked like a hamster in a wheel rolling down the hill.
    Joking aside it's good he walked away so to speak.
    Testament to modern builds.
