Richard Hammon post-crashAs those of you who have been following the story of his recovery know, Richard Hammond, co-host of popular British automotive show Top Gear, suffered serious brain injuries from a 288mph jet car crash last September. Hammond returned to Top Gear this past Sunday where it's reported he received a "hero's welcome" from fans. Top Gear aired footage of crash, which you can see online via the BBC.

Hammond, who watched the footage alongside co-hosts Jeremy Clarkson and James May, said that he has no recollection of the crash. "The only difference between me now, and before the crash, is I like celery now." Investigators are still reviewing the safety precautions taken by the show. Top Gear, which appears on BBC2, aired briefly in the United States on the Discovery Channel.
