British actor Rowan Atkinson, best recognized as "Mr. Bean," crashed his McLaren F1 supercar on Thursday just north of London.
Reports say Atkinson was driving his F1--one of the world's fastest road cars--about 85 miles outside London when the incident occurred. The car, worth about $1 million, hit a tree and a lamppost before catching on fire.
The 56-year-old comedian was taken to a hospital, where he received treatment for a shoulder injury. He was expected to be discharged on Friday.
