Following a serious road traffic collision on the N81 in Tallaght, Dublin, Thursday afternoon, a female pedestrian(50s) was seriously injured.
The 50-year-old woman was brought to Tallaght University Hospital to receive treatment for her severe wounds.
The crash happened around 3.20 p.m. today near Tallaght Stadium, and road closures have impacted most of the traffic in South Dublin.
The N81 (Tallaght Bypass) near Tallaght Stadium, as well as the Junction 11 exit on the M50 Northbound, remain closed as Garda continue to investigate the crash.
As a result, traffic is expected to be extremely congested in Tallaght, Templeogue, Greenhills, and Firhouse.
