A MAN HAS died and a woman is in a serious condition after the car they were travelling in crashed on the M50 late last night.

It is understood the pair are husband and wife.

Gardaí said the vehicle left the road, hit a lamppost and crash barrier before rolling onto its side.

It happened at 0.45am between Junction 10 Ballymount and Junction 11 Tallaght.
