Gardaí are appealing for witnesses after a serious crash on the M50 motorway on Wednesday morning in which a woman was seriously injured.

Commuters faced hours of serious disruptions after the collision at junction 7 Lucan this morning.

The southbound motorway was closed at J7 from about 7am until the early afternoon, causing major traffic disruptions.

The collision involved a car and two trucks, and Dublin Fire Brigade confirmed four of their units attended the scene.

A woman (47), who was the sole occupant of the car, was seriously injured.

She was taken to Tallaght Hospital where her condition is described as critical. The two male truck drivers, aged 33 and 47 were uninjured.

The road was closed for a period of time to facilitate Garda Forensic Collision Investigators but has since reopened.

Gardaí said there was a lot of debris as well as vehicles on the road which needed to be cleared up also.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information, particularly those who were travelling on the M50 southbound between junctions 6, Blanchardstown and 9, Red Cow or who may have merged onto the M50 Southbound at the junction 7, Lucan via the N4 Eastbound/Westbound between 5am and 5.45 am this morning, to contact them at Lucan Garda Station on 01 6667300, the Garda Confidential Line, 1800 666111 or any Garda Station.
