There was a lucky escape for three people, including a one-year-old baby, who were in a car that ran off the road and flipped over onto its back near Tallaght last night.

The incident happened on the N81 Tallaght to Blessington road.

Dublin Fire Brigade and an ambulance from the Tallaght Ambulance Base attended the scene.

The former tweeted pictures from the incident this evening.

The tweet from @DubFireBrigade read: "Last night we attended a rollover RTC with @TallaghtAmbo. 3 occupants escaped serious injury. Take care driving in wintery weather."

A spokesperson from the Dublin Fire Brigade told Independent.ie that there were no serious injures and all three occupants of the car were belted properly.

There was also an accident on the M50 today, where a truck overturned on a slip road.
