Prince Philip car crash

Norfolk police are to investigate the Duke of Edinburgh's vehicle accident, which left two people requiring hospital treatment, saying appropriate action will be taken.

Prince Philip's black Land Rover, which he was driving, was involved in a collision with a Kia at around 3pm on Thursday on the A149 at Sandringham.

Berneen Caney, 25, who witnessed the scene of the accident, said: "It appeared to be quite serious, there was a lot of glass over the road as well as debris, I saw one of the cars was quite badly damaged, as for the Range Rover, its windows were smashed".

He was conscious but very shocked and shaken, royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell told the BBC, adding that two people in the other auto were treated for minor injuries.

The driver of the Kia is understood to have suffered minor cuts, while the passenger sustained an arm injury.

Prince Philip did not sustain any injuries but was said to be "shocked" by the incident. The 97-year-old, who still drives both cars and carriages, one of his longtime passions, emerged unharmed from the incident with another vehicle, according to a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace.

Asked if the prince was trapped, Warne said: "Yes, he was".

In a place called Knockemstiff, Ohio, a forgotten backwoods of this country - a storm of faith, violence and redemption brews. This sets protagonist Arvin, Willard's son (Holland), on his path from bullied kid to a man who knows when to take action.

The woman driving the other vehicle, a Kia, and her female passenger needed hospital treatment, while a witness said there was also a baby in the auto. "There was a baby in the back seat, screaming". He told BBC Radio Four's, Today program, "I asked him to move his left leg and that freed his right leg and I helped him to get out".

Mr Warne said: "He [Philip] wasn't rude".

Prince Philip was shown driving a vehicle carrying President and Mrs. Obama, along with the queen, as recently as 2016.

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.

He said that after seeing the crash, on the A149 near Sandringham: "I went to the other vehicle". I saw the Duke's auto careering, tumbling across the road - it ended up on the other side, having rolled right over.

"Obviously, the fact that he is 97 years old will bring with it its own concerns".

Buckingham Palace said Friday that there was no update to the statement they released after the accident saying that he was "uninjured".
