The driver of this crumpled hatchback escaped without injury (but they weren't wearing their seatbelt)

The crash happened on the M50 earlier this week.

THE NEED TO wear your seatbelt in a car goes without saying these days, after years of road safety campaigns and hundreds of people dying on Irish roads every year.

However, it still happens everyday on your roads.

Gardaí posted this image of a crash that happened on the M50 just before 1pm on Monday.

An Opel Corsa was left crumpled at the side of the road following the collision, which happened close to the Cherrywood exit.

Gardaí say the driver, who escaped seriously injury, wasn’t wearing their seat belt.

Another update posted this evening gardaí involved the arrest of a driver in Waterford and the seizure of horses.

The driver, who was towing a horsebox, was stopped a checkpoint and found to be currently disqualified.

The animals were taken by the Waterford Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals.
