DUBLIN – Minions live to serve the world’s greatest evil-doers. They are the popular characters in the movies “Despicable Me” and newly-released, “Minions.”
One minion, in particular, is living up to its purpose.
An inflatable, 40-foot-tall minion caused a car accident on Monday in Dublin, Ireland. Drivers said the big balloon blew onto the road during rush hour.
One car ran into another car while trying to avoid the yellow and blue roadblock. No one was hurt in the accident, but a car mirror was damaged.
Police said the balloon drifted over from a nearby fair. Another official called the risk to safety “despicable.”
The minion was ultimately deflated and removed from the busy street.
