Since the incident this morning, there’s been no access to the road – including in, or out, of the car park at Dyke Road.

Two pedestrians were subsequently taken to University Hospital Galway – and it’s understood both suffered serious injuries.
The road has remained closed between the Headford Road Junction and the Black Box over the past five hours to allow Garda investigators to conduct a technical examination of the scene.
During that time, there’s been no access to the road – including in or out of the car park.
Gardai expect the road to reopen around now, following the completion of the technical examination.
