The three occupants of the car, who were all men, received fatal injuries.

The driver of the lorry was taken to University Hospital Tallaght with serious injuries.

The scene remains closed this morning to allow for forensic collision investigators to conduct an examination. Diversions are in place and the N7 inbound is closed.
