    Richard Hammond, Star of Britains tv show Top Gear is currently in hospital in a critical state after becoming injured in a high powered jet car whilst filming for the new series, he was airlifted to the Leeds hospital whilst he is currently in the neuro department with head injuries

    my thoughts are with him at this time

    Crap, I just made a thread about this.

    Anyway, his condition is meant to be improving, which is good to hear. Brainiac and Top Gear are great.

    Hammond is a legend. He's a really watchable and talented presenter.

    Get well soon, Hamster Hammond.

    Poor Hamster.. I heard about this on the way to college this morning.. Apparently he'll pull through (doctors are 'Optimistic'), but he's suffered serious brain injury. When they say doctors are optimistic though i'm not sure if that's about the brain damage getting better or just him being able to get out of hospital. I only found out today he actualy lives in the same town as me aswell. Weird.. Anyway, i seriously hope he getrs better.. and back to Top Gear if that's possible. It wouldn't be the same without him..

    EDIT: On a side note, is there a reason this is in kickback cafe? it just seems more serious than that to me..

    I hope that he gets well soon.

    Top Gear is awesome and Brainiac is pretty cool too.

    Wow. I always knew something like that would happen though. He's lucky he didnt get killed. Top Gear is more or less my favorite show on the earth. I miss Tiff Needell as the presenter though, but Hammond is pretty damn good too.

    I hope he can recover.

    I really hope he pulls through alright, he's the main reason I tuned into brainiac in the first place. Although, Jon Tickle is quite the character as well.

    I had no idea they aired Brainiac in the states.
    Well, the latest news is that he's suffering from "Serious brain injury", don't know any more specific than that. Hopefully he'll be okay.

    i just keep wondering what top gear will be like without him, i mean after the doctors saying he has a severe injury, i doubt he will ever be able to drive again, but it allways happens to the best presenters

    Keep in mind they haven't said permanent injuries though.

    I don't know much about science or anything, but.. serious brain injuries sounds pretty permanent to me... that seriously fucking sucks.

    Depends on what part of the brain and how bad the injuries are....its possible to sustain a brain injury in a serious accident like this, and a month later, you wouldn't even know you had that injury.

    I'm hoping for the best and hope he gets better. Top Gear won't be the same without him

    Like i said, i'm no scientist, so you're probably right :) But yeah, although, to me, Top Gear has always been Jeremy Clarksons show, Richard has always been an amazing part of it, doing the stuff that Jeremy can't do. I really do hope he can come back.. it really wouldn't be the same..
