Man hit by truck in city center

It seems the brisk Christmas shopping rush in one part of the city was brought to a standstill early this morning after a man was knocked down by a truck on Rutland Street.

The squish happened around 10.45am near the junction of Rutland Street and Patrick Street. Emergency services were quickly on the scene and traffic was held up for over an hour while the incident was dealt with.

The man did not suffer injuries any life threatening injuries. The driver of the truck is helping Gardai with their inquiries.

Please remember, being squashed by a truck on Rutland Street isn’t just for Christmas…

Be careful out there ye mad Xmas shopping bastards
