Members of the public in a Co Offaly town had a lucky escape after a driverless car ploughed onto the footpath yesterday morning.

A video, uploaded to the HGV Dash Cam Footage Facebook page last night, shows a truck towing a car as it takes a corner at Hayes Cross in Tullamore.

As the truck comes around the bend the car breaks loose at the back and heads straight across the road. It then proceeds to slam into what looks like a bin after mounting the footpath.

Luckily, no one was on that part of the footpath at the time and the Gardaí have confirmed to there were no injuries.

Gardaí have added that an investigation into the incident is ongoing.
