Four people were lucky to escape injury today when a Mercedes car crashed into an ambulance on the Swords Road in Dublin.

The collision happened at 10am as the car, which was travelling from the city centre, was making a turn into the Highfield Healthcare Centre opposite Plunkett College.

It crashed into the front of the VW ambulance owned by private operator Lifeline.

There was extensive damage to both vehicles but nobody was injured.

Ambulance driver Mick Abbey was travelling with a colleague at the time of the accident.

The occupants of the 2002 Mercedes C180 were a Polish national and his partner.

It is believed they were travelling to a job interview locally when the crash occurred.

There were traffic tailbacks as a result of the crash until the ambulance and the car were towed away.

The ambulance did not have any patient in the back at the time of the accident.
