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.

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

The deceased, a 62-year-old man, was a passenger in the car and died at the scene, while the driver, his 60-year-old wife, was rushed to Tallaght Hospital where her condition is described as critical.
