A three-year-old girl has died after a serious car crash in Limerick this evening.

Two cars collided in the northbound lane of the M20 motorway near Patrickswell.

Five other people were taken to University Hospital Limerick but their injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

The accident occurred at 4.45pm.

Both the northbound and southbound lanes of the motorway are closed between the Adare and Patrickswell interchanges.

Diversions are in place with a Garda Collision team still at the scene carrying out a technical examination.
