The duke emerged unharmed but two people in another auto were injured in the crash that occurred Thursday when the duke was driving near the Sandringham Estate, according to police and Buckingham Palace.

The duke was pulling out of the driveway in his Range Rover when the collision occurred, with the auto overturning onto its side.

A police spokeswoman said: "As is standard procedure with injury collisions, the incident will be investigated and any appropriate action taken".

The Duke was not injured in the collision, a Buckingham Palace spokesman confirmed yesterday.

Prince Philip was breath tested right after he flipped his Land Rover in a frightening crash near the Sandringham Estate on Thursday.

Prince Philip's black Land Rover, which he was driving, was involved in a collision with a Kia at around 3pm on Thursday on the A149 at Sandringham.

Buckingham Palace has revealed that the Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to hospital this morning as a precautionary measure.

"The male driver of the Land Rover was uninjured", it added.

The palace reported that Philip was driving the SUV and pulling out of a driveway onto a two-lane road when the accident occurred.

The Prince was unhurt in the crash. The female driver, 28, was in the vehicle alongside a 45-year-old woman and a nine-month-old boy who were treated in hospital.

Royal commentators said Philip, who married Elizabeth in 1947 and has been by her side throughout her record-breaking 66-year reign, would be loath to give up driving.

A witness said there was a baby and a man in the Kia as well, but police have not confirmed this.

One said he was conscious but "very, very shaken".

The Duke had previously not attended the Royal Family's Christmas church service, and was again absent for the first church service of the New Year at Sandringham on Sunday, January 6.

"I rushed to the other vehicle - there was smoke coming out as if it may explode".

One witness said Philip was lightly bleeding and appeared "very shocked" but was pulled from the wreck with the help of bystander Roy Warne.
