In case Richard Hammond's spectacular jet-car crash (http://www.autoblog.com/2006/09/20/update-details-on-richard-hammond-crash/) wasn't enough to convince you of the inherent dangers of filming British television's top car shows, the presenters of Fifth Gear have given us another startling reminder.

Barrowman, who plays a character who cannot be killed on Dr. Who spin-off series Torchwood, was driving the £120,000 rally-spec Subie with Needell riding shotgun when the actor lost control of the car, sending it over the shoulder and flipping several times down the hill before coming to a rest on the shore of a lake. Paramedics arrived at the scene and removed glass shards from Barrowman's eyes before taking both to the hospital with no major injuries. Check out the video after the jump (http://www.autoblog.com/2009/07/23/video-tiff-needell-and-actor-john-barrowman-crash-subaru-rally/) for the segment -- a stark reminder that enthusiasm and ego aren't a suitable replacement for talent.
