Gardaí and Traffic Infrastructure Ireland (TII) motorway crews responded to the incident initially while units of Clare County Fire and Rescue Service from Shannon station were also requested to attend.

When fire crews arrived at the incident, a short section of the dual-carriageway was closed so that the crashed vehicle could be safely removed from the scene.

Traffic was diverted up and over junction 6 flyover to re-join the N18 on the other side.

A number of National Ambulance Service resources, responding to another incident, were cleared to safely drive through the scene.

Once the van had been recovered from the scene, the route was fully reopened.
