This was the scene when a car lost control and struck an electricity pole and a street light in the Newcastle area off the N7 earlier.
Dublin Fire Brigade were quickly on the scene and put lane restrictions in place to manage traffic.
Both the electricity pole and the lamp post can be seen lying on the ground with cables detached.
The incident happened on the R405 route between Newcastle and Celbridge close to the junction of Hazelhatch Road.
