Emergency services are dealing with a crash on the M7 in Laois.
A car transporter left the road earlier this afternoon, on the eastbound carriageway between Junction 19 M8 and Junction 18 Portlaoise West, near the toll plaza.
No injuries were reported and the right lane is currently open.
However, the road will have to be closed later, as a crane will be required to remove the vehicle.
Motorists are urged to drive with caution in the area.
