PICS: Motorist Lucky To Be Alive After Mysterious Car Crash On M50

Darragh Berry

A very lucky escape. 

Pictures posted by Dublin Fire Brigade show a car on its side, very badly damaged and smashed but with no occupants inside.

The M50 crash, which happened sometime during the early hours of Monday morning, was described as a mystery when it was found that there was no injured people inside. 

The crash took place on the M50 northbound near the Red Cow at Junction 9 and for a time, two lanes were closed at the scene but they have since reopened.  

Crews from Tallaght attended the crash and cleared the road.

Dublin Fire Brigade tweeted: “Overnight firefighters (B Watch Tallaght) attended a roll over RTC M50 J9 Red Cow NB. No occupants on arrival. Car recovered by M50Dublin, lanes reopened.”

It is not known what caused the crash. However, the motorway was slippy last night following prolonged period of rain. 

If you’re heading out on the roads today, be extremely careful and drive slower than usual.
