Kirstie tells us that a person is now being cut from the car.
LUAS services also say that trams are running from Saggart/Tallaght to Blackhorse and from Smithfield to the Point only due to incident.
Tickets are valid on Dublin Bus.
UPDATE: 12.55: Normal services have now resumed but expect delays of up to one hour
