A VISIT to the seaside ended in disaster for one driver yesterday after she accidentally drove her Fiat Punto into the water.
The woman, in her 40s, was treated for shock but otherwise unharmed after her car plunged off the West Pier in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin. It is not yet known what caused the vehicle to tip off the edge of the pier. Luckily the tide was out and the car was only partially submerged.
