SANDRINGHAM UK. Prince Phillip, The Duke of Edinburgh has been involved in a car crash while driving near the Queen’s Sandringham estate, Buckingham Palace has said.
HRH Prince Philip, 97, was not injured in the accident, which happened as he drove a Range Rover out of a driveway onto the A149 shortly before 15:00 GMT.
Buckingham Palace said the crash involved another car, and two people in it were treated for minor injuries.
Eyewitnesses said the car that the duke was in overturned.
They said they helped the duke out of the vehicle. He was conscious but very, very shocked and shaken, they added.
The duke is back at Sandringham and has seen a doctor as a precaution.
Another eyewitness who drove past the crash scene – near a village called Babingley – at around 15:40 said she saw an ambulance and “a heavy police presence”.
“I was just going down the A149 … and saw a lot of blue flashing lights ahead,” she said. “I saw a black, 4×4 type car on its side and me and my son were like ‘oh my word, that doesn’t look good’.
“Obviously it looked quite smashed in. I’m quite amazed the duke is okay actually.”
