Rowan Atkinson; a repeated victim of celebrity death hoax

Rowan Atkinson had few death encounters
Rowan Atkinson did face the biggest fear in the past. More specifically, in 2001, he confronted death few times.
His passion for cars has somehow been the reason to lead him to the near-death experience. The first came up when he was showing off his Aston Martin V8 Zagato at a 2001 Aston Martin Owners Club meeting. He was safe and sound at that time, but the same didn’t happen in 2011.
While driving his McLaren F1, Atkinson stroke into a tree and the car was totaled. However, the actor managed to pry himself free and walked away with few bruises, cuts and a fractured shoulder.
