Witness helped Prince Philip after 'horrendous' car crash

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The man who helped Queen Elizabeth's 97-year-old husband Prince Philip after his car flipped over following a crash with another vehicle, described on Friday (January 18) how he helped Philip escape the debris after witnessing the collision.

Roy Warne, who was driving home with his wife when he saw the collision, told TV reporters how he had helped ease the royal out of the overturned vehicle before realizing who he was.

Philip was at the wheel of his Land Rover when it collided with another car on a road close to the royals' Sandringham private residence in Norfolk on Thursday (January 17) afternoon, Buckingham Palace said.

Philip was unhurt, although shaken.

The other driver, a 28-year-old woman, suffered cuts to her knee and a 45-year-old woman passenger in the car, who also had a nine-month-old baby on board, sustained a broken wrist.

They were taken to hospital but later released.

Witnesses told media the accident had occurred when Philip was pulling out of a driveway onto a main road, with pictures from the scene showing Philip's Land Rover overturned on the side of the road.

Police said both drivers involved in the accident had been breath tested but neither were over the alcohol limit.

Coincidentally, local councilors were due to meet on Friday to discuss safety concerns and lower speed limits on the road where the accident took place.

Philip retired from public life in 2017, although he still occasionally appears alongside his 92-year-old wife at official engagements.

Royal commentators said Philip, who married Elizabeth in 1947 and has been by her side throughout her record-breaking 66-year reign, would be loathe to give up being behind the wheel of a car.

There is no legal age in Britain to stop driving, but after 70 people must renew their license every three years.
