A number of people had a lucky escape after a car smashed through the window of a Dublin cafe.

This picture shows the aftermath of the bizarre incident, during which a Mercedes ended up inside Rogers Cafe in Ballymount's M50 Business Park.

Thankfully nobody was injured during the lunchtime smash, which happened shortly before 12pm yesterday.

The incident was attended by the 'A' watch unit from Tallaght fire station, with Dublin Fire Brigade posting an image of the aftermath on their Twitter page.

Injured

It is not known how the car ended up inside the cafe, but the incident is being treated as an accident.

A similar crash occurred last November when a car smashed through the window of a Crumlin laundrette.

Nobody was injured in that incident either.
