Former England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff, who has been hosting the BBC programme “Top Gear” since 2019, suffered serious injuries during a shooting in the United Kingdom. In the incident occurred at the Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey, where the broadcaster-turned-cricketer was filming the show, disaster struck.
The 45-year-old received rapid medical attention from the show crew’s medical staff before being transported via helicopter to a neighbouring hospital. The Sun reports that Flintoff’s wounds are not life-threatening.
When the show’s cameras were rolling to get his opinions on a certain automobile during the review section, the great England all-rounder allegedly got hurt. At the time of the collision, Flintoff was the one driving the car.
The BBC in a statement said, “Freddie was injured in an accident at the Top Gear test track this morning – with crew medics attending the scene immediately.
A legendary all-rounder who represented England in all forms of the game, Flintoff retired in 2009 after participating in 79 Tests, 141 one-day internationals, and seven Twenty20 Internationals. During this time, he amassed 7,315 runs across all of the formats and claimed 400 wickets. Even after officially quitting the sport in 2010, Flintoff, who was crucial to England’s Ashes victories in 2005 and 2009, kept coming back to the sport.
