    Who? The bus driver?

    From unison.ie

    Gardai have confirmed that an arrest has been made in connection with the Wellington Quay bus disaster. It ahs been six weeks since the crash involving two buses one of which was picking up a queue of passengers when another ploughed into them. Five people died. Investigators said at the time inquiries into the cause would take six weeks to complete. It has emerged that last Saturday Gardai arrested a man in connection with the crash and later released him without charge. A file has been prepared and sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions, the role of whom is to decide whether to recommend a prosecution. Gardai have refused to say whether the man is a bus driver or an employee of Dublin Bus.

    THis is speculation on my part but I can't see it being anyone other than one of the bus drivers. Why the arrest though? Anyone got any thoughts. My initial thought was over legal limit or something ...

    they would not leave it this long if anybody involved were over legal limit

    That's true, anyway it was a horrible accident, and no one deserves to be blamed, imagine the guilt that those two bus drivers must feel...

    to be fair you shouldn't judge the results of the investigation before they are published. Clearly the investigators are in a far better position than you to assess blame.

    Well that depends; if it was a genuine accident then it's just that.
    If someone has been arrested then the Gardai obviously feel that someone broke the law.
