Swedish King Rear-Ends Another Car

(08-25) 14:00 PDT STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) --

King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden rear-ended a car with his BMW at a roundabout Thursday, but both the monarch and the other driver were unhurt, the royal court said.



The king was driving through Norrkoping, about 60 miles southwest of Stockholm, when the car in front of him stopped abruptly because of a cyclist crossing the road, court spokeswoman Ann-Christine Jernberg said.



Both cars were slightly damaged, she said.



The monarch and an aide were returning to Stockholm from the island of Oland off Sweden's southeastern coast.



The king is an avid motorist and often chooses to drive across the country in one of his several cars, instead of riding with the country's security police.



Police said the king was not suspected of comPolice said the king was not suspected of committing a traffic offense.

He got the CSL just a few weeks ago. According to reports he was very excited when I got it delivered. It was a used one with about 20000km on it if I remebered correctly.

Maybe the king already has regrets for not accepting Gustav's offer to review his new M5 and learning a few tricks from the non noble.:sad1:
