John Barrowman Crashes on Fifth Gear
text size: A- A+
The 42-year-old British actor was driving a rally spec Subaru Impreza worth almost 120,000 pounds. Barrowman was driving the Subaru while Tiff played the role of the co-pilot. The two seemed to be having great fun, until John lost control of the car at about 80 mph (128 km/h).
News of the World informs the car slid down a verge and flipped four times before stopping right near a lake at the bottom of a steep hill. The rescue team rushed to the scene of the accident and safely removed the two from the damaged vehicle. While no information regarding the state of tv presenter Tiff Needell was disclosed, actor John Barrowman was slightly injured.
After the accident John Barrowman stated: “I'm lucky to walk away unscathed. I got a ticking off from my mum afterwards”. In a somewhat similar manner with his movie character who cannot die, Barrowman escaped the incident with only minor cuts and bruises.
The crash will be shown on Fifth Gear's upcoming episode on July 21.
