England's Prince Philip involved in a major car crash

Prince Philip

By all accounts, he was not injured, but two people in the other vehicle were treated for minor injuries.

"His Royal Highness had no injuries of concern". Bystanders who helped the Duke out of his auto said he was conscious when they found him, but appeared to be "very, very shocked".

He did not go to hospital and was now back at Sandringham, the private country residence owned by Queen Elizabeth in the county of Norfolk.

He said older drivers, and their families, should be aware of health conditions and could speak to doctors if concerned, or get assessed for any need to improve their driving.

"People could have been killed".

The Palace spokeswoman added that contact had been made privately with the other car's occupants and "well-wishes exchanged".

"Before I even stopped I said... dial 999".

He also said a baby was helped out from the Kia and the mother was in distress. He then pulled him out, saying he was not sure whether it was through the windshield or the sun roof. News photos show that the Land Rover flipped on its side; eyewitnesses cited by the news agency said Prince Philip was "shocked and shaken" but not unconscious after the impact.

He told the Sun he heard the duke say he had been "dazzled by the sun". "I saw a black, four-by-four type auto on its side and me and my son were like "oh my word, that doesn't look good".

While he said older drivers needed to ensure they had regular eye tests, RAC research showed 75% of over 70s had an eye test in the a year ago.

It said officers were called to the estate shortly before 3:00 pm (1500 GMT) "after a Land Rover and Kia were involved in a collision". "He is of course very independent and he has been a very active man".

Norfolk Police confirmed both drivers were breathalysed and the tests proved negative.

Prince Philip showed the former US President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, the personal touch when he drove them and the Queen to Windsor Castle after the Marine One presidential helicopter landed close to the monarch's Berkshire home during their visit to the United Kingdom in April 2016.

Norfolk Police confirmed in a statement that the baby was a nine-month-old boy.

"The male driver of the Land Rover was uninjured", it added.

Both he and the female driver of the Kia were reportedly breath tested, with no alcohol detected in either of their systems.

The Duke of Edinburgh was involved in a road traffic accident with another vehicle this afternoon.
