Two people have been hurt in a crash between a tram and a car in Dublin city centre this morning.

The Luas Red Line is now back running with delays after being shut down for a time earlier.

The crash happened after 8 o'clock this morning at the junction of Capel Street and Upper Abbey Street, where the Red Luas line crosses the street.

A tram headed east for the Point Depot collided with a saloon car, which came to rest against a utilities box on Upper Abbey Street.

Gardaí and firefighters came to the scene.

Pictures posted online by Dublin Fire Brigade show damage to the front of the tram and smashed glass and deployed airbags inside the car.

Two female casualties, the driver of the car and a passenger, were taken to Temple Street Children's Hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

Nobody else is reported hurt.
