Emergency personnel were on the scene and immediately transported Chicherit to a hospital. Luckily, the stunt driver was only “slightly injured,” according to his Facebook page.
The statement reads: “Guerlain is doing good and has already reviewed video footage of the jump to see what went wrong. He got out of the car himself, slightly injured, and will now get a precautionary MRI to check that everything is fine.”
Later on Tuesday, Chicherit wrote: “Cheers everybody!!! Thanks a lot for all your support!!! I have to stay [in] the hospital for the night just for safety, I’m all OK!!!
“’Success is not final, failure isn’t fatal: it’s the courage to continue that counts.’ [Winston] Churchill.”
Which might be another way of saying the stunt driver will give it another try once he’s able. Chicherit was (is?) hoping to jump a world-record 360 feet in his car.
