A truck driver had a lucky escape after his long vehicle jackknifed across the N24 Limerick Waterford Road this morning.
Motorists faced long delays as both lanes were blocked following the incident.
The truck shed part of its load and came to a halt on the Pallasgreen side of Dromkeen, around 8.15am.
Gardaí have now reopened the road.
