The injuries sustained by the former England National Cricket Team all-rounder are “not life-threatening” and he was “driving on the track as normal” and was not going at high speed, as per a report in The Sun.

A source told The Sun that Flintoff was airlifted to hospital following the accident and the filming of the episode has been postponed.

“All the usual health and safety measures were in place for filming too,” a source was quoted telling The Sun. 

“Freddie was taken to hospital by air ambulance shortly afterwards. Filming has been postponed for now and all anyone cares about is Freddie recovering.”
