Lucky escape for man and child
A man and a child were lucky to escape unharmed after the SUV in which they were travelling ended up perched precariously on its side in the ditch at Bloomfield on the Enniscorthy to New Ross road yesterday morning.
The incident took place at around 9 a.m. and saw the vehicle come around a bend in the road to be confronted with a car that had come to a stop turning. The driver, a man in his thirties, slammed on the brakes and was forced to take evasive action, resulting in the vehicle going off the road and down into a dyke, ending up on its side.
Gardaí were immediately called to the scene and a garda spokesman said that while there was some minor traffic disruption, nobody was hurt during the course of the incident. They spoke to the driver at the side of the road and a tractor and a recovery truck were required to remove the vehicle which was wedged into the ditch.
