Prince Philip shaken up in auto crash

Prince Philip

Prince Philip is recovering in the Royal's Sandringham estate following a "horrendous" crash just outside the grounds Thursday.

The Duke of Edinburgh was involved in a vehicle crash near Sandringham Estate on Thursday afternoon.

Prince Phillip was behind the wheel of the vehicle when it crashed.

A source said: "The duke's routine in the coming days will continue as normal". Local police attended the scene.

He said that after seeing the crash, on the A149 near Sandringham: "I went to the other vehicle".

She added: "He saw a doctor as a precaution and the doctor confirmed he was not injured".

Mr Warne, who lived in Golden Hill, Whitstable before moving to Norfolk, said it looked as if the senior royal had "extraordinarily severe injuries" at first, but he had had an "astonishing escape".

There's a photo of the scene and it appears the vehicle Prince Philip was driving actually overturned.

There is no suggestion speeding was involved in this incident but eyewitness Roy Warne, 75, said the Landrover "came across the A149 like a somersault".

The 97-year-old Duke of Edinburgh was reportedly left "shocked and very, very shaken" but uninjured in the wreck near Babingley, Norfolk, according to The Sun.

By coincidence, Norfolk County Council is scheduled to meet on Friday to discuss plans to reduce the speed limit on the road from 60mph to 50mph and install safety cameras.

The retired royal is back at home and has seen a doctor.

Philip was driving his auto at about 3pm, when he pulled out of a driveway onto the A149 in Babingley, Norfolk, just beside Sandringham.

Police said they "are aware of the public interest in this case", but declined Friday to speculate on the cause of the collision.

The Duke was not injured in the accident.

Prime Minister Theresa May sent Philip a message wishing him well after the accident.

Local police told CTV News that Prince Philip and the female driver of the other auto were both breathalyzed and both tested negative.

Nick Freeman, the lawyer dubbed Mr Loophole, said the duke could be prosecuted for driving without due care and attention if he was deemed to have made a mistake.

It's been reported both Prince Philip and the other driver were breathalysed at the scene.

"I told him to move one of his legs to make room for the other leg, and then I put my hands under his arms and helped ease him out backwards", he said.
