According to the UK's Daily Mirror, Jeremy Clarkson has added more injuries to his Monaro-generated bad back, with a crash while filming Top Gear. While exact details of the incident are in short supply, it is believed to be the Top Gear presenter's first serious crash in 31 years.

In typical Clarkson style his descriptions of his injuries are quite vivid:

"My right index finger looked like a burst sausage, my left shin was fatter than my thigh and my back felt like someone had driven over it with a pile-driver," sayeth the exalted one.

Reading between the lines, it would appear that Jeremy's pride is the only thing that has received any lasting damage.

From down here in the colonies, we're hoping he'll soon be back in saddle and as loopy as ever.
