Idris Elba flips his car, escapes injury


Just days following the release of his anticipated film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, U.K. newspaper The Sun reported that actor Idris Elba was involved in a  serious car crash while filming an upcoming documentary in Finland, but miraculously walked away unharmed.

The Sun reports that Elba was filming a high-speed racing documentary, titled “Idris Elba: King of Speed,” when he overturned the vehicle.

“I never want to do that again. It’s the first time that I have ever rolled a car. I wasn’t going fast, the car just had a mind of its own when it hit the band. I cut the corner, and then we rolled,” said Elba of the car crash.

Thankfully, the 41-year-old actor escaped with no injuries. As for his latest project, “Idris Elba: King of Speed,” the BBC2 two-part documentary is due to air in the U.K. on Dec. 26 and 27. –ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
