The prince, 97, was driving a Land Rover, which overturned during a collision with another car, but the Duke of Edinburgh walked away unscathed, the BBC reported.

A witness told the BBC that the duke was “very, very shocked,” but he was not injured and did not need medical treatment.

Two women in the other vehicle did need treatment for minor injuries. They were treated and released from a local hospital.
