Idris Elba Uninjured After Car Flips Over
The 41-year-old actor was in Finland shooting a racing documentary, titled Idris Elba: King of Speed, when he went over an embankment that overturned the vehicle."I never want to do that again," Elba told UK newspaper The Sun. "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."The Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom star continued filming after the accident and later talked of his love for speed and buying his first car at age 14."It was a Mini Clubman," said Elba. "To buy a car at 14 you must have facial hair because when you have facial hair at 14 people don't ask your age." The two-part BBC documentary is set to air in the UK on December 26 and 27.
