A pedestrian has been injured after a truck shed its load on Christy Ring Bridge in Cork city centre this lunchtime.
Eyewitnesses said a flatbed building supplies truck appeared to shed several wooden sheets it was carrying as it drove from Lavitt's Quay north onto Christy Ring Bridge around 1pm.
A pedestrian who was walking on the western footpath was apparently struck by some of the sheets as they fell onto the path.
