Sweden's royal palace says King Carl XVI Gustaf was involved in a car crash on his way to an airport in Stockholm but was unhurt.

Palace spokeswoman Annika Sonnerberg says the 68-year-old king was in the back seat Wednesday when his car collided with an oncoming vehicle making a left turn.

Tabloid Aftonbladet published a photo on its website showing the palace's dark-colored Mercedes with damage to the front and the driver's side air bag deployed.

The palace said the king, his driver and an aide were all fine.

Sonnerberg said she didn't know whether anyone was injured in the other car or whether there would be any legal aftermath.

Sonnerberg said the king was taken in another car to Bromma Airport for a domestic flight to northern Sweden.
