BRITISH actor Murray Head was taken to hospital after he was involved in a horrific crash with a lorry in France.
The actor was on his way home to Saucède when he lost control of the Gan ring road in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques.
According to local media, Head was taken to hospital in a conscious but “relatively urgent” condition.
Speaking to French media outlet Sud Ouest, the 76-year-old said: “I’ve been incredibly lucky.”
“I went in the north-south direction and then I found myself going in the other direction. Am I dazzled by the sun? I do not know. I have nothing to drink. “
The star returned home today.
He added: “I was in pain. It hurts a lot. I was extremely lucky.”
The accident happened around 3pm on Monday just hours after his interview with France Bleu Béarn Bigorre about the Queen’s death.
Born in London, the actor and singer is known for his role as Bob Elkin in the Oscar-nominated film Bloody Sunday.
He is also known for his international hits Superstar and One Night in Bangkok.
