British TV presenter RICHARD HAMMOND has spoken out for the first time about his horrifying 300-mile-per-hour (483-kilometre-per-hour) jet car crash last month (20SEP06), insisting he thought he was going to die. The TOP GEAR star was filming a stunt for the popular BBC motoring show when his dragster careered off the track near York, England, leaving Hammond with severe head trauma. Miraculously, the 36-year-old is now ready to return home from hospital and he admits he's been "so bloody lucky". Hammond says, "I was upside down inhaling a field. My nose and eyes were full of earth. I'd gone ploughing on my head. "My very last thought was, 'Oh b**ger, that's gone wrong. Well, we're checking out now. You've had it.' "At the time of the crash I was doing 288 miles per hour so its incredible that every doctor I've spoken to tells me I'm on course for a 100 per cent recovery."
The actor says he isn't "holding out for more money or doing anything like that".
The drama will be making its return to the streaming service in the near future.
