Britain's favorite car show just can't stop annoying the Brits.
The UK's most popular television car show, Top Gear, and especially its lead host, Jeremy Clarkson, have gained an iffy reputation that has gotten them into trouble with the British media and public, time and again. While previous incidents usually revolved around Clarkson's big mouth and affinity for racial and homophobic slurs, this time the show is getting negative attention for its choice of content and location in one of its recently filmed episodes.
It seems that Clarkson and co-host, James May, decided to take a bunch of Peugeots out and crash them at a site in Oxfordshire. May crashed his Peugeot into Clarkson's car, with May's vehicle ending up in a ditch and Clarkson's in a roadside field. Unfortunately, this was the precise location of a 2010 crash that claimed the life of a 26 year old woman named Jane Sandalls, who herself was behind the wheel of a Peugeot 106. It seems that the choice of the site was unintentional, but Top Gear declined to comment when pressed by the Daily Mail.
