Rowan Atkinson Crashes Supercar Into Supertree

by | 5th, August 2011

LEGEND of British comedy, Rowan Atkinson, has decided to give us all a laugh today by crashing his supercar into a tree. Then a lamppost. Then it caught fire.

Seriously. That’s Baldrick levels of ace.

Mercifully for Blackadder/Mr Bean/That Police Thing He Was In fans, he’s in a stable condition. Which is good because you don’t tend to have little prangs when razzing around in a McLaren F1 supercar.

Atkinson earned himself a nice shoulder injury but managed to walk away from the flaming vehicle while he waited for an ambulance who probably thought the whole thing was some huge joke.

Of course, those who number themselves as a proper fan of Atkinson, they’ll know he’s something of a car enthusiast. He actually holds the record for the fastest celebrity lap time on Top Gear. There was no crashing into trees there.

A spokeswoman for the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said:

“Crews brought the fire under control by 8.13pm. They made the vehicle safe and used one hose reel to put out the fire. There was one casualty but he was not trapped”.

They then burst out laughing and did Mr Bean’s trick of putting some trunks on without taking their trousers off.
