The Duke of Edinburgh was left “very shocked” and shaken following a car crash, but walked away unhurt after his vehicle overturned.
Philip, 97, was driving a Land Rover when the accident involving a Kia happened near the Queen’s Sandringham Estate, resulting in the driver of the car and her female passenger needing hospital treatment. Norfolk Police confirmed both drivers were breathalysed and the tests proved negative.
There was also a baby in the Kia, according to witness Roy Warne, 75, who told The Sun that the Land Rover “came across the A149 like a somersault. It was turning on its side over and over”.
He added: “It was frightening to see a powerful car rolling like that.
Prince Philip, who was driving at the time of the crash, was able to walk away from the scene. Police said Prince Philip and the driver of the Kia involved in the collision were breath tested and provided negative readings.
Philip had been pulling out of a drive onto the the A149, a major road, when it was hit by the other car. Eyewitnesses described seeing the Prince being helped out of the vehicle, looking “shocked and shaken”.
The palace said the Duke was seen later by a doctor as a precaution and confirmed he was not injured. It would not comment on who Philip’s passenger was, but it is likely he was travelling with his close protection officer.
