Prince Andrew allegedly hit police officer with car

LONDON — British police are investigating an accident in which Prince Andrew allegedly struck a police officer with his car while driving into Buckingham Palace.

Media reports said Queen Elizabeth II's second son hit the officer as he was driving his four-by-four through the palace gates. The palace confirmed Friday there had been "a minor incident" involving the prince and said it was a matter for the police.

The Metropolitan Police say an officer had been hit by a vehicle on Constitution Hill, outside the palace, and sustained minor arm injuries.
