London, United Kingdom (4E) – The man who rescued Prince Philip from his recent car crash is now retelling the story and describes how he saw the Duke of Edinburgh’s vehicle swerving uncontrollably across the road.

Roy Warne told BBC that he was driving on his way home from work on Thursday when he saw Prince Philip’s Land Rover careering across the road and hitting a compact car shortly before 3 p.m. on the A149 near Queen Elizabeth’s Sandringham estate.

“I saw a car, a black Rover, come out from a side road and it rolled and ended up on the other side of the road,” Warne narrated. “I saw it careering, tumbling across the road and ending up on the other side.”

He said that duke was “obviously shaken” but still managed to get up and inquire about the condition of others involved in the accident.

Warne first approached a Kia driven by a woman with a nine-month-old baby in the backseat. Warne, together with another man, helped the woman and the baby get out. The people involved in the crash were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lyn to receive treatment. Two women obtained a broken wrist and wounds on the knee. The baby was unharmed.

A spokeswoman of the palace said that the Duke of Edinburgh was also asked to visit the hospital for a “precautionary check-up,” Yahoo reported. The results confirmed that His Royal Highness did not suffer any injuries and has returned to Sandringham.

Warne said he overheard the duke tell the police that he was “dazzled by the sun”, thus losing control of the vehicle. The two people who responded to the scene said they believe he was travelling alone at the time of the collision.

The drivers of the car involved in the collision, including Prince Philip, took the breath test, as per Norfolk Police standard policy, and the results turned out negative.
