REVEALED: Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff's Top Gear Car Was NOT fitted With Airbags

Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff's horror crash sports car was not fitted with air bags.

The television presenter, 45, was driving an open-topped three-wheel 130mph Morgan Super 3 car for Top Gear in December last year when the vehicle flipped at an aerodrome.

The classic-look £43,000 British handmade vehicle, which is described as a 'motorised tricycle', does not have air bags, according to maker Morgan's website.

Former cricketer Andrew was left with broken ribs and serious facial injuries after the accident.

An internal health and safety investigation by the BBC is reportedly nearing completion and the broadcaster's bosses may face legal action from those involved.

A source told The Sun: 'Very little has been revealed about the accident and bosses are keen to keep a lid on details.

'This revelation about not having an air bag is bound to spark questions from fans.'

The BBC declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.

Sportsman Freddie has taken time off from all work to recover and Top Gear will reportedly not return.

The Morgan Motor Company was known for making three-wheel cars before the war before bringing them back into production in the 2000s.

Freddie was airlifted to hospital after the crash while shooting an episode of Top Gear at Dunsfold Park Aerodrome in Surrey.

A source told The Sun at the time: 'Freddie is in hospital after a crash on Top Gear.

'He was driving on the track as normal. He wasn't going at high speeds - it was just an accident that could happen to anyone.'
