Anybody know how much damage there is to the IRC that hit a car at Kilnageer level crossing, at Breaffy, near Castlebar, earlier?

The photo on the RTE web site of the car looks like the occupants of the car had a very lucky escape. Luckily it was struck by one of those fisher price toy 22k trams and not a loco. The vehicle looks like it might have been an EV, KIA E-soul, so doubly lucky no issues with battery pack and all the safety stuff must have worked. No photos of the front of the tram on the media so far.


also looks like it’s a manual unmanned crossing with a history of near hits.
