IRISH RAIL HAS released CCTV footage of the moment a truck crashed into a bridge on Amiens Street in Dublin earlier today.

Train services were temporarily suspended between Connolly and Tara Street following the incident.

Engineers then checked the bridge and deemed it safe for traffic to pass through again. 

Releasing the CCTV footage, Irish Rail tweeted: “Had pedestrians, cyclists or motorists been on the other side of the road, people could have been killed at Amiens St this lunchtime. 

“Know your load height for the safety of all.”
