SIX PEOPLE HAVE been taken to hospital after a major road traffic collision in Dublin city centre yesterday evening.

It happened at the junction of Adelaide Road and Earlsfort Terrace at around 6.16pm.

Gardaí said that it appeared from initial investigations that a number of pedestrians were struck by a car but they stressed that it was not a hit-and-run.

In an update this morning, a spokesperson at the Garda Press Office ruled out any link to terrorist activity.

Fire engines from Donnybrook, Tara Street and Dolphin’s Barn attended the scene, as did ambulances from Dublin Fire Brigade and the National Ambulance Service.

The road was closed for a time and motorists urged to avoid the area.

This closure caused knock-on delays on Leeson Street inbound from the canal to Stephen’s Green. The road was later re-opened.
