Rowan Atkinson crashed his McLaren F1 weeks after taping tonight’s Top Gear episode
First off, he walked away from the accident. He’s ok.

Rowan Atkinson, the comedian and petrol-head, has been discharged  from hospital on Friday after walking away from a crash in one of the  world’s fastest road cars – suffering no worse than an injured shoulder,  some very expensive coach work and wounded pride.
He left  Peterborough City hospital in a wheelchair by the back door, flanked by  security guards who attempted to block waiting photographers, and was  driven away in a private ambulance.
The accident happened when one of the stars of his large car collection the maroon McLaren F1 – which he bought in 1997 for a reported £650,000, as a reward for  the success of his Mr Bean film – apparently spun off the wet road on  Thursday night and hit a tree and a lamppost.
