A WOMAN was lucky to escape serious injury when a bale of hay struck her windscreen in Wexford town last Friday morning.
The round bale was one of four to come off a trailer at around 10 a.m. at Killeens when the tractor drawing it clipped a kerb.
The windscreen of the woman's Toyota car was smashed, but she escaped without injury. No other cars were damaged as a result of the accident.
Gardaí attended the scene of the accident, which caused delays in the busy area for some time until the damaged vehicle and bales were taken away.
