ESB crews have repaired a power line after a pole was brought down in a road traffic accident in Limerick city.

The pole, located on a slip road off the Rosbrien Road near the Lidl supermarket, came down in the collision around 11am on Sunday morning.

Limerick Fire Service received a call at 11.12am to say a pole was down, but on arrival, found that there had been a road traffic collision and a car had overturned, while the pole was down and the power line affected as a result.

No one was injured in the incident, but gardai and ambulance personnel attended the scene, as did ESB crews, who replaced the pole, work which was completed on Sunday night.

An ESB spokesperson said: "There were no injuries but the incident did cause a power outage in the local area. ESB Networks crews were mobilised immediately to replace the pole, which was completed yesterday evening."
