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.

In a statement to JOE, a Garda spokesperson said that there have been no reports of injuries from the crash and that enquiries into the incident are ongoing.

Meanwhile, a Dublin Bus spokesperson told JOE:  “I can confirm an incident did take place on Baggot Street last night involving a number 38 Dublin Bus.

“Emergency services attended the scene. No one was injured.”
