Six injured in two separate Luas incidents

Six people were injured in two separate incidents involving the Luas in Dublin city centre this morning.

A pedestrian fell into a tram just before 11am at Benburb Street.

The man was taken to hospital with what are believed to be minor injuries.

The incident happened about an hour after a collision involving another tram and a car at O'Connell Street.

Five people, including the Luas driver, were taken to hospital as a precaution after the crash.

O'Connell Street was reopened a short time later and Luas services operated as normal.
