Prince Philip Will Not Be Prosecuted Over Car Crash

Prince Philip will not face prosecution over his car crash that left two women injured, England’s prosecution service has announced. The 97-year-old gave up his driving license, which was reportedly his own decision, last week after his Land Rover collided with another vehicle last month. He apologized to the occupants of the other car—two women and a baby, with one of the women suffering from a broken arm. Chris Long, chief crown prosecutor for the east of England, said: “We took into account all of the circumstances in this case, including the level of culpability, the age of the driver and the surrender of the driving license... We have decided that it would not be in the public interest to prosecute.” The crash is believed to have happened after the prince pulled out of a driveway near the Sandringham estate—the queen’s private country home—and was blinded by the sun.
