Newstalk presenter George Hook was left shaken after he was involved in a minor car incident last night, but he was thankfully uninjured in the collision.

The broadcaster admitted he was “pretty shocked” after the taxi in which he was travelling rear-ended into the car in front of them.

The 74-year-old was travelling home from work in a cab when the crash occurred on the N11, just minutes away from his home.

“I was getting a taxi home from the office and we were only five minutes from the house, just by Foxrock church,” he explained.

“The usual thing happened – the two cars in front had a problem and braked suddenly. The poor taxi driver had no chance, he ploughed into the back of your man.”

Hook told the Independent.ie that nobody was injured in the collision but said he was going to bed “a bit sore”.

“Firstly, everyone was okay,” he said. “And, secondly, surprisingly for the bashing the cars got, there was not much damage done which is great news.

“I still got a shock. I’m obviously a bit shook and going to bed a bit sore, but I’m okay, I’m fine.”

Despite the scare, George made sure to commit to his weekly date nigh with his wife Ingrid.

“We have a great tradition in the Hook family where I bring Ingrid out to dinner on Tuesday nights,” he admitted. “And, although I was feeling a bit under the weather, I made the commitment and we made it out to dinner.”
