UPDATE: 'Is everyone else alright?' How 'very brave' but 'shaken' Prince Philip, 97, 'went to check on mother and her baby' after he was pulled through roof of his Land Rover after he was 'dazzled by sun' and crashed into Kia. Prince Philip is 'conscious but very shocked and shaken' after crashing his Land Rover near Sandringham yesterday afternoon.
The Duke is unhurt and with the Queen at Sandringham following the dramatic crash after he pulled out on to A149 in Norfolk.
Two women with ten-month-old baby in back of their Kia smashed into the side of his armoured Land Rover.
All three were rushed to hospital - one suffered a broken arm, the other injured her knee but baby unharmed.
Philip was pulled from the wreckage via sunroof and Duke was 'conscious' but 'very shaken and shocked'.
The 97 year old does have an up to date driving license. In UK there is no age limit on drivers but after the age of 70 they must be re-tested every 3 years.
The Duke was seen by a doctor at his medical facilities on the Sandringham Estate as a precaution but was given the all clear. However, he will be closely monitored for 48 hours to ensure he has no internal injuries.
The Duke of Edinburgh and the female driver were breathalysed and both gave negative readings. The crash happened on a stretch of the single carriageway road which has a 60mph limit and is a notorious accident spot.
Astonishingly, the site is just 30 miles from where the Duke was involved in another crash 23 years ago, which wrote off a Mercedes and injured another motorist.
There is still some confusion about where his royal protection officers were. Reports that he was in car in his own. However people arrived on scene very quickly. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 #britishroyals#britishroyalfamily#royalfamily#sandringham#queenelizabeth#princephilip#princephillip#dukeofedinburgh
