Emergency services are still at the scene and the road will be closed until tomorrow afternoon at the earliest, gardaí say.

The cause of the crash is not yet known but gardaí say road conditions were good at the time.

They are investigating if the driver of the car attempted to turn on the road just before the collision with an articulated lorry travelling behind it.
