The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip was involved in a horrifying car crash on Thursday, in Norfolk, England. The crash occurred as the royal patriarch pulled his Land Rover out of a side road onto a busy main road. He ended up clashing with a Kia, which was carrying two women and a nine-month-old baby. However, just hours after the incident, there are reports of the Duke being questioned by the police for driving without a seatbelt!
According to the reports, Philip was pictured on Saturday while driving his brand new Land Rover Freelander on his wife’s private Sandringham estate. A Norfolk Police spokeswoman stated that the police officials are aware of the photographs doing the rounds and that ‘suitable words of advice have been given to the driver’. "This is in line with our standard response when being made aware of such images showing this type of offence,” she added.
She also commented on the Thursday car crash, which left one of the passengers in the Kia with a broken wrist and the driver with cuts in the knee. "As is standard procedure with injury collisions, the incident will be investigated and any appropriate action taken.”
Meanwhile, Emma Fairweather, the woman who suffered a broken wrist due to the mishap, has reportedly complained about not receiving an apology from the Prince as yet.
"I'm lucky to be alive and he hasn't even said sorry. It has been such a traumatic and painful time and I would have expected more of the Royal Family," she told the Sunday Mirror.
