People have been asked to not post any images or footage of the fatal accident that occurred on the M50 yesterday.

Around 11:30am yesterday morning, gardai and emergency services were called to the scene of a multi-vehicle collision on a slip road just off the M50 at Junction 5 in Finglas.

A woman in her 30s sadly passed away after her car collided with another, being driven by a man in his 50s.

Shortly after the crash, images began to circulate online.

The man was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and minor damage was caused to a truck and a third car.

Gardaí yesterday asked people not to share the images out of respect to the woman’s family and the other people involved.

Independent Senator Lynn Ruane is among those how have taken to social media to ask people to please refrain form posting the distressing images.

Lynn, a family friend of the victim, wrote, ''My friend has lost his sister and the last thing his family need right now is an image of the accident.''

She also asked anyone who sees photos of the incident to share the URL link with her.

She continued, ''Facebook has created a digital fingerprint for the images that will prevent them from being re-uploaded to the site but it still need links to remove the images from any networks on which they remain. The loss of a loved one so sudden is traumatic enough without the added trauma of an image.''

Gardaí have said that some motorists were “slowing down unnecessarily while passing the scene” of the incident and causing delays.

If anyone has any information, please contact Finglas Garda Station 01 666 7500 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.
