IRISH Rail services have returned to normal after a truck collided with a bridge in Clontarf this morning, causing huge delays.

Height restrictions prevent certain trucks passing under bridges, however the driver ignored warnings and proceeded – colliding with the bridge.

The driver subsequently failed to report the incident and left the scene.

On their Twitter page, Iarnroid Eireann said: ‘To the trucker who hit bridge, failed to report it & left the scene: we have your reg & company you drive for. Talk soon, lots to discuss.’

Commuters were left frustrated by the huge delays following the incident. One commuter tweeted: ‘The most appalling service today from #irishrail. 7:45am train does a 20 Min journey in over an hour. Hundreds late for work. No apology…’

Further tweets by the rail company suggested that the driver will face fines, costs, penalty points and prosecution.

However, as of this afternoon, the delays have been shifted and trains are running as normal.
