Richard has been reportedly discharged from Leeds General Infirmary (LGI) to the BUPA hospital in Clifton, Bristol, to be closer to his home in Gloucestershire.
Richard has been at LGI after suffering a high speed crash while attempting to break the UK land speed record while shooting for the acclaimed BBC programme, TopGear. The amount of fan support for Richard in the aftermath of his accident has been enormous.
It is rumored that the future of TopGear is hanging in the balance due to the accident. Fans (myself included) are obviously heavily opposed to the possible cancellation of TopGear.
Fans of TopGear and Richard have turned out in force at LGI in the interim since his accident. Although Richard has made no public statement at this time, the photo of him being wheeled by stretcher to the airlift helicopter shows him smiling. It is reported that Richard’s neurologist has given him a full recovery estimate of 6 months.
I will continue to provide updates on Richard’s condition because of the sheer number of readers for the story. It seems that this blog has become a source of information for this story.
