GARDAÍ ARE INVESTIGATING whether a car involved in a four-car collision on the south quays in Dublin this afternoon was involved in two other collisions earlier today.

The collision occurred at 2.10pm on Wellington Quay.

Four cars were involved in the collision, including one official garda car.

Three people have been taken to hospital. The extent of their injuries is not yet known.

A garda spokesperson told that it is believed that one of the cars involved in the incident may have been involved in two other minor collisions at St Stephen’s Green and Tara Street.

The south quays were closed off between Burgh Quay and Wood Quay as a result of the incident for most of the afternoon. However, the road has since been reopened.

The College Green traffic ban had been temporarily lifted for outbound traffic as gardaí are implemented diversions.
