This is SO super scary! We're so happy he's okay!
Prince Harry was on his way to the Invictus Games in London yesterday when his motorcade was involved in a high-speed car accident!
Luckily the prince was NOT hurt, but one of the police in his escort was!
What happened was that while his motorcade was escorting Harry to the games, a white Prius did not stop when the escort was coming.
His guards feared this was a possible terrorist attack so they took "evasive action" and one of the motorcyclists collided with the car to stop it and Harry's Range Rover sped away several hundred feet down the road.
Luckily, both the policeman and the driver of the car ended up being okay despite initial injuries.
A rep for the Prince commented on the incident, saying:
"The prince was obviously very concerned and wanted to make sure the men were okay. He is relieved to hear they are both in a stable condition."
WOW! That sounds terrifying.
To explain the situation better, Scotland Yard spoke out saying exactly what happened.
"The police motorcyclist was displaying warning lights, as it was providing security escort at the time. The male rider of the police motor vehicle suffered injuries. He has been taken to hospital for treatment. His condition at this early stage is described as stable. The male driver of the Prius also suffered injuries. He was taken to hospital for treatment. His condition at this early stage is also described as stable. The condition of the injured parties is not thought to be life threatening at this stage. Police officers remained at the scene and provided assistance."
Holy moly! We guess this is just one of those things that come with being a prince (or princess)!!
We're just glad everyone involved is okay!!
