A group of people escaped injury after the bus on which they were travelling left the road and was left perched precariously on a ditch above a six foot drop.

Emergency services were alerted to the collision on the R468 at around 1.00pm. It’s understood that there was no other vehicle involved.

Units of Clare County Fire and Rescue Service from Ennistymon station responded to the incident to the scene along with National Ambulance Service paramedics and Gardaí. An additional fire service emergency tender was dispatched from Ennis to assist at the scene.

It’s understood there were around 20 people on board the bus but were all able to escape from the vehicle unharmed. None of those on board the bus required hospitalisation.

A crane is expected at the scene at around 5.00pm when efforts will be made to remove the bus. The route remains closed at this time (4.45pm).

Meanwhile, three people have been taken to hospital following a two-vehicle collision on the N85 Ennis to Ennistymon road. That incident occurred at around 1.30pm at Monreel South and involved a Garda patrol car and another vehicle.

It’s understood that three people in all were assessed by National Ambulance Service paramedics and that two Gardaí and one other person were transported to University Hospital Limerick for treatment. Their injuries are not believed to be serious.

The N85 has since reopened to traffic.
