PanARMENIAN.Net - Britain's Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II, has emerged unhurt after a traffic accident in which the 97-year-old's Land Rover flipped onto its side, CNN reports.

The accident occurred about 3 p.m. local time (10 a.m. ET) on a public road near the Queen's Sandringham estate in Norfolk, police said. Pictures from the scene showed Philip's vehicle laying on its side with debris scattered around it.

Another image showed the vehicle had suffered major damage to the front left-side door -- the opposite to where a driver sits in the UK -- and much of the side.

The other driver involved in the collision 'suffered cuts while the female passenger sustained an arm injury, both requiring hospital treatment,' police said in a statement.

Both drivers were given breath tests 'per department policy,' which they both passed.

Following the collision, Philip saw a doctor at the Queen's Sandringham Estate, where he and the monarch are staying.
