(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Queen Elizabeth's 97-year-old husband Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, 97, escaped uninjured from a 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.
Eyewitness Nick Cobb told the BBC that he passed the car on its side, but could not see whether Prince Philip was still inside at the time.
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 afterwards.
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.
