At the time, the duke was pulling out of his driveway in his Land Rover Freelander when he collided with a Kia. Victoria Warne, who was first on the scene of the crash, told The Sun the police officer who took her statement said anything related to the crash was in an inspector's office for security reasons.
Two days later, he was found driving without a seat belt and Norfolk Police gave him "suitable words of advice". Two women in the other auto were injured, though not seriously, and a nine-month-old baby boy was unhurt.
The crash is still being investigated by the authorities, with the investigation file for the incident recently being passed on to the Crown Prosecution Service.More news: No. 4 Virginia comes from behind to beat No. 8 UNC
