A collision involving two cars this afternoon resulted in one person being taken to Cork University Hospital (CUH) for treatment, a spokesperson for An Garda Síochána has said. 

A unit from the Cork City Fire Brigade as well as ambulance services were also in attendance at the collision. 

Emergency services needed to close the road after a wheel was torn from the axle of one the vehicles involved. 

The incident happened around 4.15pm this afternoon on the Rathpeacon Road near the Rathpeacon GAA club in Farranree, Co. Cork. 

Cork City fire brigade warned motorists to approach the area with caution in a social media post. 

The collision blocked the road with the debris from the cars scattered across the surface. 

Traffic restrictions have remained in place for a number of hours as emergency services attended the scene. 

Gardaí are investigating the incident.
