Chris Harris Crashed His Personal Porsche 911 GT3 Touring While on Top Gear Duty
He was reportedly working on an item for the British media outlet's magazine at the time.
According to an eyewitness, the Porsche T-boned a pickup truck that was in the middle of a three-point turn on the A466 close to Tintern, Monmouthshire in Wales. The internet and TV star was reportedly working on an item for Top Gear magazine at the time and had a "senior executive" from the publication in the passenger seat. Nobody was hurt.
A Top Gear spokesperson told the BBC, "We can confirm that Chris Harris was involved in a car accident in Wales earlier today whilst working on a feature for Top Gear magazine. Chris, his passenger, and the driver of the other car were unhurt and police were called to the scene." Looking at the picture of the aftermath found in the report, followers of Harris on social media will likely recognize the damaged 911 as his personal vehicle and not a press car.
This isn't the first mishap Harris has had during his tenure at TG. Earlier this year, Harris and co-host Eddie Jordan found themselves scrambling out of an Alpine A110 after the French coupe suddenly caught fire in the middle of filming.
He can be seen alongside Matt LeBlanc and Rory Reid on the upcoming 26th series—LeBlanc's last—of the long-running motoring show. From the 27th series onwards, the show will be helmed by Harris, Freddie Flintoff, and Paddy McGuinness with Reid taking on a supporting role.
