‘Mr. Bean cheats death’ in car crash

UK: Actor Rowan Atkinson cheated death last night after careering off the road in his 240mph supercar. The Euro 650,000 McLaren F1 spun several times, smashing into a tree and ploughing into a road sign before catching fire on the opposite side of the carriageway.

The Mr Bean star, 56, pulled himself free from the wreck and was looked after by a passing motorist until emergecy services arrived on the A605 at Haddon, near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, at 7.30pm.

Firemen tackled the blaze and an ambulance crew took him to nearby Peterborough hospital where he was believed to be recovering last night.

It is not the first time the Blackadder star has crashed the supercar, which can sprint from 0-60mph in just three seconds.

Atkinson, who has a passion for fast cars has written articles about different vehicles for specialist car magazines.

Though his collection of cars changes regularly, he also has a Euro 125,000 Aston Martin Virage, a vintage Rolls-Royce, and an elderly Morris Traveller, which he regularly drives around the Oxfordshire village where he lives in a £1 million former rectory.

He also has a Euro 2.5 million townhouse in Chelsea. Last night an East of England Ambulance Service spokesman confirmed the accident.
