May hurt during Top Gear Christmas Special

Thursday, December 23, 2010

One of Top Gear's presenters was hospitalised after suffering severe concussion during filming recently.

The Sun reports that James May fell and hit his head on a rock while trying to pull a car out of a ditch for the Christmas special of the popular BBC car show.

May told the newspaper "I stood in the line of where the tow rope went taut. I told the driver to move off and became part of a giant catapult." Fellow presenter Jeremy Clarkson said the incident was "very worrying" and that there was a "lot of blood".

May had stitches and was put on a drip at a local hospital in Syria where the filming was taking place.

He said "They gave me a brain scan but to be honest I think the Syrians were just excited to be able to use their new scanner."

The Top Gear special in which the 46-year-old was injured can be see on December 26th on BBC2.
