Truck Railway Crossing Dublin Main

Major delays to DART services are expected on Thursday after a truck severely damaged a level crossing.

The incident happened at Serpentine Level crossing.

The truck was parked in the middle of the yellow box and in order to avoid being hit by one railing at the rear of the truck, it sped on and smashed through the barrier in front of it.

A spokesperson for Irish Rail said that: "Expect significant delays to DART services due to damage to barrier at Serpentine level crossing.

"Remember never stop on a yellow box at a level crossing, because this can happen."
