3 survive as car plunges into stream
THREE people had a lucky escape yesterday after their car left a road and overturned into a stream.
The single-vehicle accident happened at around 2.50pm on the R458 Ennis to Galway road in Co Clare.
Gardai were first to arrive at the scene where they were met by a woman and two young men.
All three managed to escape from the car when it started to fill with water.
They climbed up the ditch on to the roadway to wait for emergency services to arrive.
All three were assessed at the scene by paramedics and were found to be uninjured.
