A MOTORIST ploughed through a railing and into the basement of a Georgian building following a two-car collision.

Four people – including two garda officers – were admitted to hospital following the incident in Limerick city centre.

The collision happened just after 7am yesterday.

It is understood that the two female garda officers, who are based at Roxboro garda station, were making their way home in a Volkswagen Golf after completing their shift. They were travelling along Mallow Street when the collision occurred at Catherine Street junction.

A Renault Megane collided with them before it careered over a footpath, crashed through protective railings and into a basement. A man and woman were in the Renault.

All four people were brought to the Mid-Western Regional Hospital to be assessed for injuries, but all were later given the all-clear and discharged. Both cars are believed to be written off.
