Red Line Luas collides with truck in Dublin
The incident occurred on Monday morning.
A Red Line Luas collided with a truck in the Smithfield area of Dublin on Monday morning (30 March).
The driver of the tram, a male whose age is currently unknown, was taken to the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital with what is believed to be non-serious injuries. No other injuries were reported.
Traffic diversions are in place for the next number of hours as the Luas has been pushed off track and will take some time to repair.

Luas operators Transdev have since offered an update about the situation, saying: "Due to a road traffic accident at Smithfield there is currently no service from Blackhorse to The Point. Services will operate from Tallaght / Saggart to Blackhorse.
"We apologise for any and all inconvenience caused."
Any Luas tickets will be valid on Dublin Bus services as a result.
