Richard Hammond is a presenter of the wildly popular show, TopGear, in England. He also presented Brainiac: Science Abuse and Richard Hammond's 5 O'clock Show.

Recently (september-october 06) he was in a crash and had to be airlifted to hospital. TopGear was nearly cancelled. He suffered brain trauma but will be fine.

I think the name of the car he was driving was called a vampire or summat. He was trying to break the speed record when he lost control of the car.

I cannot believe no one has mentioned Richard Matheson!

Richard Matheson (1926-2013) was a science-fiction/fantasy/horror author and screenwriter. He's probably best known for writing I Am Legend and What Dreams May Come, but he also wrote several Twilight Zone episodes, and the Star Trek: The Original Series episode The Enemy Within. One of my absolute favorite writers ever. :)

Oh, and also, there’s Richard Paul “Rick” Astley, of “Never Gonna Give You Up” fame.
