A traffic light was entirely flattened in a crash off the M50 at the weekend

Thankfully, no-one was seriously injured in the collision. A woman was taken to hospital for treatment to non-serious injuries.

A METAL TRAFFIC light pole was entirely flattened, and the light casing shattered in a crash off the M50 in south Dublin over the weekend.

Gardaí posted the eye-opening picture on their Twitter account. It happened at the flyover at the Firhouse exit, shortly before midnight on Saturday.

A Garda spokesperson said a female passenger was taken to hospital for treatment to non-serious injuries in the wake of the crash.

It’s understood the driver was not injured.

The Garda spokesperson said he wanted to remind people to take care on the roads, and to obey speed limits.

Separately, Gardaí also responded to a collision in Cork on Saturday night, where a man was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving.
