Emergency services attend scene of Limerick road accident

The accident happened at Rourke's Cross at around 9.30am

Emergency services are attending the scene of a three car collision at Rourke’s Cross on the main Limerick to Cork road.

One person has been taken to hospital following the multi-vehicle accident which happened around 9.30am this Saturday.

Paramedics from the National Ambulance Service attended the scene while gardai and three units of the fire service from Kilmallock and Charleville are still there.

While nobody sustained life-threatening injuries, a tow truck will be required to remove one of the vehicles from the road.

There are long delays at present but it is expected the N20 will be fully reopened by lunchtime.
