Idris Elba Involved in Car Accident


Idris Elba

Idris Elba is another star with a need for speed and owning up to the consequences.

Despite being injury free after a car he was driving flipped while filming an upcoming documentary, the actor is giving up his race car dreams.

“I never want to do that again–it’s the first time that I have ever rolled a car,” the actor told UK newspaper, The Sun. “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.”

The expecting father was filming a racing documentary in Finland entitled Idris Elba: King of Speed. 

The two-part BBC documentary will air December 26 and 27 in the UK.

We’re just glad he’s okay and can’t wait to see his car-flipping documentary.
