Prince Philip Has Brand New Land Rover Dropped Off Following Crash

Prince Philip Has Brand New Land Rover Dropped Off Following Crash

Prince Philip has had a brand new replacement Land Rover delivered just hours after he was involved in a crash near to Sandringham.

That's the kind of service when you can expect when your other-half is the Queen, I suppose.

The black Land Rover Freelander was dropped off earlier today and is the exact same model as the one the 97-year-old was driving yesterday when he was in the crash.

According to the Palace, Philip wasn't hurt in the crash, but he is being monitored by doctors.

Two people who were in the other car - a Kia - were taken to hospital where they were treated for minor injuries and later discharged.

The Land Rover was overturned in the crash and had to be towed away.

A statement from Norfolk Police about the incident, read: "The driver of the Kia, a 28-year-old woman, suffered cuts to her knee while the passenger, a 45-year-old woman, sustained a broken wrist.

"Both casualties were treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn (irony) and were discharged last night.

"Police can also confirm a nine-month-old baby boy was in the Kia at the time of the incident and was uninjured.

"The driver of the Land Rover, a 97-year-old man, was uninjured.

"Both drivers were breath tested and provided negative readings."

Eye-witness Roy Warne told the BBC: "I saw it careering, tumbling across the road and ending up on the other side.

"It would take a massive force [to have done that]."

Following the crash, Norfolk County Council has said new safety measures will be introduced in the area.

The environment, development and transport committee gave the thumbs up to plans to lower the speed limit from 60mph to 50mph and that speed cameras will be introduced.

The proposals had been in place prior to the crash, with local councillors saying they'd been looking into the safety of the area 'for some time'.
