A truck and Luas crashed this morning in Tallaght resulting in two passengers being brought to hospital and the suspension of some Red Line services.
The incident happened between 6am and 6.30am. Two people were brought to Tallaght Hospital but their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
Six units of Dublin Fire Brigade attended the scene on the Cheeverstown section of the Luas Red Line this morning.
A spokesman said two people had been taken to hospital as a precautionary measure with possible spinal injuries.
