Traffic delays after truck full of cattle overturns on the N11

The driver of the truck was taken to hospital for treatment to minor injuries.

GARDAÍ, THE LOCAL fire brigade and ambulances attended the scene of a road accident this morning, after a truck overturned on the main Dublin-Wexford road.

It happened north of Arklow near Jack Whyte’s pub at around 6.30am, according to AA Roadwatch.

A Garda spokesperson said the driver of the truck had been taken to St Vincent’s Hospital in Dublin for treatment to minor injuries.

The road was closed in both directions for a time earlier, as emergency services attended the scene.

A stop-go system is now in place southbound, and it’s expected the truck will be cleared entirely from the road by later this afternoon.
