Top Gear presenter Chris Harris wrecks Porsche after crashing into truck

Top Gear presenter Chris Harris was involved in a car crash on Monday afternoon while fillming scenes for the car show’s magazine.

The motoring journalist crashed his car into a pick-up truck that was performing a three-point-turn on a country road in Monmouthshire, reports the BBC.

Fortunately Chris had a lucky escape and didn’t suffer any injuries, but the black Porsche GT3 he was driving in was badly damaged in the smash.

The driver of the truck also escaped uninjured.

"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," a Top Gear spokesperson said in a statement.

"Chris, his passenger, and the driver of the other car, were unhurt and Police were called to the scene."

Last summer, Chris was left with a horrific head wound after a freak race track accident.

He needed stitches to his head after it was sliced open while at a race circuit in Spa, Belgium.

Chris later took to Twitter to reveal pictures of his bloody injury caused by a sharp edge of an aerodynamic wing on an F3 racing car.

The wing was being carried by a racing crew member as it sliced through the presenter’s skin while he stood in the paddock.

Chris was working ahead of the 26th series of Top Gear – its last with Matt LeBlanc, which will air in early 2019.
