A male in his 40s - the driver of one of the vehicles, was pronounced deceased at the scene and has been removed to Dublin City Morgue.

A male in his 30’s has been taken to Tallaght Hospital with life-threatening injuries and another male in his late 20’s was taken to Tallaght hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

A male in his 40’s was treated at the scene but did not require hospital admittance.

Investigation is ongoing.
