SEVEN PATIENTS WHO received treatment following a bus crash on the N7 last night have now been discharged from Naas General Hospital, Gardaí have confirmed.

There were 47 people on board when the coach veered into the hard shoulder and crashed into a barrier at around 10pm last night.

The crash, which happened on the outskirts of Kill in Co Kildare, caused only minor damage to the vehicle.

Authorities were reporting ice on many road surfaces overnight. It’s not known if this was a factor in the crash.

“It could have been much worse. Coach crashes often are,” an emergency services source said.
