A Dublin Bus driver and 10 passengers escaped without serious injury after a bus crashed in Dublin city centre this morning.

The roof came off the bus in the incident, however all passengers were seated in the lower section.

The crash happened at around 8am when the bus collided with a tree near the Five Lamps on Amiens Street.

No one suffered any physical injury but the driver was treated for shock in hospital and released a short time later.
