Delays ease as scene of Limerick road crash is cleared

The scene of the collision on the N21

GARDAI say the scene of a road collision on the N21 between Limerick and Rathkeale has been cleared and that traffic has returned to normal.

There were lengthy delays for a number of hours this Tuesday evening after a truck and a car collided shortly before 6pm.

A section of the N21 – on the Rathkeale side of Croagh village – was closed in both directions for a time as emergency services attended the scene.

Gardai, paramedics and two units of Limerick Fire and Rescue from Rathkeale were deployed following the incident.

A number of recovery trucks were also required to remove the crashed vehicles from the road.

The road fully reopened shortly before 8pm.

Gardai say nobody was seriously injured in the collision – the cause of which is being investigated.
