Reuters – Broken glass and a damaged car wing mirror were left on the side of the road following a car crash involving Britain’s Prince Philip on Thursday (January 17).

Queen Elizabeth’s 97-year-old husband escaped uninjured from the crash which occurred as he drove near the Sandringham estate in eastern England, Buckingham Palace said.

Police said two people in a car that collided with that of the prince, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, were both taken to hospital for minor injuries but later discharged.

Pictures from the scene showed a Land Rover overturned on the side of the road. The accident occurred when Philip was pulling out of a driveway onto a main road, the BBC reported, quoting a witness saying he was very shaken.

A palace spokeswoman later confirmed Philip was at the wheel and was checked by a doctor afterward did not go to the hospital and was now back at Sandringham, the private country residence owned by Queen Elizabeth in the county of Norfolk.
