Three people were hospitalised following a six vehicle road traffic collision on the M50 which is causing delays for motorists this evening.

The incident took place at junction 9 Red Cow during rush hour traffic, and fire brigade and ambulances were soon at the scene.

"Three people were taken to Tallaght University Hospital as a precaution. The road remains open,” a garda spokesperson said.

Images from traffic cameras show very heavy traffic in the area.

“The hard shoulder and auxiliary lane are affected with severe delays on approach,” a spokesperson for Dublin Fire Brigade said.

However, all lanes have now reopened southbound between Junction 7 Lucan and Junction 9 Red Cow following the earlier collision.

"Traffic remains heavy on approach," said the M50 Twitter account.

A Garda spokesperson confirmed that three people were hospitalised. It is understood nobody is seriously injured.
