TRAFFIC ground to a halt on Patrick Street in Limerick city yesterday evening (Friday November 4) as Gardaí and emergency services responded to a collision involving a car and two busses. 

The incident occurred shortly after 7pm yesterday evening when two Dublin Coach busses – one directed towards Ennis, the other towards Tralee – trapped a large taxi outside Arthur’s Quay Shopping Centre, blocking one of the city’s main thoroughfares.

Gardaí have said that there were no injuries reported at the time of the incident and the road was reopened shortly after, with only superficial damage caused to the vehicles involved.
