Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip not to be prosecuted over Jan 17 car crash
Queen Elizabeth's 97-year-old husband Prince Philip will not face prosecution after a car crash last month that injured two women, Britain's Crown Prosecution Service said on Thursday. Philip, who escaped without injury on Jan. 17 when the Land Rover he was driving flipped in a collision with a car close to the royals' Sandringham residence in eastern England, voluntarily gave up his driving licence earlier this month.
"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 licence," the CPS' Chris Long said in a statement. "We have decided that it would not be in the public interest to prosecute."
