British actor Idris Elba escaped injury after a car he was driving flipped over during filming for an upcoming TV documentary.
The “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” star was in Finland shooting the BBC documentary “Idris Elba: King of Speed” when he overturned the vehicle on an off-road rally circuit.
Elba tells Britain’s The Sun, “I never want to do that again. 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 bank. I cut the corner and then we rolled.”
The two-part documentary is set to air in the UK on Dec. 26 and 27.
