Dublin Bus and boat involved in city centre collision
Yes, you read that correctly...
A Dublin Bus vehicle and a boat – yes, a boat – became involved in an unlikely road traffic crash in Dublin city centre on Wednesday (5 October).
Gardaí attended the scene of the collision between a number 38 bus and a boat attached to a trailer that occurred at around 9pm on Baggot Street Upper, Dublin 4.
Images posted to social media show that the front of the bus – which was travelling to Burlington Road via Blanchardstown – sustained damage in the collision.
