Emergency services rushed to the scene of a crash in Dublin last night after a car collided with a Luas.

The incident occurred at around 10.20pm at the junction of Suir Road and Davitt Road.

Three engines from the Dublin Fire Brigade attended the Drimnagh scene where up to 12 people were injured.

At least six ambulances, an advanced paramedic car and an emergency doctor were also called to assist.

A total of twelve people, ten men and two women, required medical assistance and were taken to Saint James' and Tallaght Hospitals.

The injuries of the passengers - aged from late teens to mid 30's - are not believed to be serious.

The Luas Red line was impacted as a result of the incident and Dublin Bus were accepting valid tickets for affected commuters.

However, full line services resumed shortly afterwards.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to the collision or anyone with information to contact them at Sundrive Road Garda Station on 01 666 6600, The Garda Confidential Line, 1800 666111 or any Garda Station.
