ITV’s Vera star Murray Head was on his way to his home to Saucède, France when he lost control of his car on the Gan ring road in Pyrénées-Atlantiques, according to reports. The 76-year-old was taken to hospital with “relative urgency” following the accident but was conscious.

The crash happened on Monday around 3pm just hours after his interview with France Bleu Béarn Bigorre about the Queen’s death.

The British actor told local reports he has “aches and pains” after the car crashed into the lorry.

Murray, who played Peter Calvert in Vera, is understood to have been living in the south-west of France for a number of years

On the day of the accident, he gave an interview about the Queen and spoke about being overwhelmed with emotion when hearing the news of Queen Elizabeth II’s death at age 96.

Murray told French media outlet Sud Ouest: “I was going north-south and then I found myself going the other way. Was I dazzled by the sun? I don’t know. I hadn’t had anything to drink.

He added: “I’ve got aches and pains. It hurts a lot. I was incredibly lucky.”

The on-screen star reportedly returned home today following the incident.
