It was a scary day for the royals after Prince Philip, 97, was in a car accident with another vehicle near the Sandringham Estate.

The BBC reports Prince Philip was behind the wheel as he turned his Range Rover onto the coastal road A149.

It is unclear who was at fault in the accident, but the Range Rover appeared to be on its side in the aftermath. A witness helped pull the Duke of Edinburgh from the vehicle, saying he was shocked and shaken, but unhurt.

Two people involved in the crash were treated for minor injuries, and a doctor checked Philip at Sandringham as a precaution.

Buckingham Palace told The Guardian in a statement, “The Duke of Edinburgh was involved in a road traffic accident with another vehicle this afternoon. The duke was not injured. The accident took place close to the Sandringham Estate. Local police attended the scene.”

Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth had been staying at Sandringham since Christmas.
