The driver of the car died after his vehicle left the road on the southbound carriageway of the motorway where it joins with the M11 at Shankill.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

The dead man is believed to be from the Bray area.

A large number of gardai and emergency vehicles attended the scene to try to save the man’s life and divert traffic from the area.

Earlier today, it was reported that emergency services had been called to the scene of a 'serious' accident.

AA Roadwatch warned motorists at the time to avoid the area as there were related delays on the M50 southbound back to Cherrywood (jct 16) at the M11/M50 merge (jct 17).

The M50 southbound was reduced to one lane of traffic from J16 Cherrywood to J17 M11 after the collision.
