WATCH: Truck collides with bridge in Dublin city centre

Train services were suspended following the incident.

Irish Rail services between Connolly and Tara Street stations in Dublin were suspended on Monday afternoon after a truck collided with a bridge in the city centre.


The incident occurred on Amiens Street shortly after 1pm on Monday (8 April).

Iarnród Éireann shared footage of the crash on social media.

The video shows an articulated truck transporting a tractor and digger driving beneath a bridge, with the crane of the digger catching onto the fixture above.

The connection causes the vehicle to fall from its position onto the street below, with visible debris falling from overhead.


Iarnród Éireann noted that the incident could have proved fatal if pedestrians, cyclists or motorists happened to be passing in the vicinity.

No injuries have been reported.


Engineers have since cleared the bridge at Amiens Street and the area it is now safe for traffic.

Brief delays are expected at time of writing on Monday afternoon.
