Unhappy Clarkson injured in head-on crash

According to a report by the UK's Mirror, Jeremy Clarkson has been injured during filming of the BBC version of Top Gear. The story doesn't divulge the circumstances of the crash or what the presenter was driving during the incident, but according to Clarkson, the head-on collision was his first serious crash in 31 years. Top Gear's front-man described his injuries in typical Clarksonian style thusly: "My right index finger looked like a burst sausage, my left shin was fatter than my thigh and my back felt like someone had driven over it with a pile-driver."

Oh my god, hope he recovers soon, wasn’t he belted up, guess as always.
Jeremy Clarkson is one of the best known faces in the arena and my personal favorite.

You're forgetting that he's not exactly a spring chicken. I hope he can keep doing his stuff for as long as possible :(

Wonder if they will bring out the showgirls again to welcome Clarkson back after his accident. Wish him a speedy recovery.

His words as usual are witty, but the accident does not seem to be a small one. I wish him a speedy recovery.
