Crown princess Mary found herself unintentionally turning heads yesterday when she was involved in a collision with a cyclist in the tony Østerbro district.

According to eyewitnesses, Mary, driving with two of her children at the time, appeared to be completely taken by surprise as a female cyclist crashed right into the side of the family's bronze Land Rover as the car made a right-hand turn.

“The cyclist seemed to almost be lost in her own world. It’s like she didn’t even see the car,” a construction worker who saw the accident unfold from the scaffolding nearby told the tabloid BT.

The woman, said to be an “older woman”, was not injured in the collision, but the rear wheel of her bike was reportedly damaged.

The court has since confirmed that Mary was involved in the incident, and that the crown princess had contacted the cyclist to ask how she was doing. The royal family has also said it would pay for any damages done to the bike.

The junction where the incident occurred is said to be notorious for its collisions between cars and bicycles.
