Bruce Hwy open again after truck rollover

TRAFFIC CHAOS: Crash carnage sparked around Coast after Bruce Hwy truck smash


BOTH lanes of the Bruce Highway southbound are open again after this morning's truck rollover.


TOW trucks are on scene of an earlier truck rollover on the Bruce Highway at Beerburrum.

A QPS media spokeswoman said vehicles had been cleared from the road but one lane of the highway still remained closed.

Long delays are expected.


TWO people have been taken to hospital following a car and truck crash on the Bruce Highway this morning.

Paramedics have transported a man in his early 60s and a man in his 30s to Nambour Hospital with chest pain following the crash.

One lane of traffic is blocked and long delays are expected southbound.

Queensland Fire and Rescue Service station officer Grant Gaskin said the accident happened when the truck heading north and a ute heading south collided.

Mr Gaskin said it appeared the truck had crossed over into the path of the ute, which was towing a trailer carrying a water tank.

He said one man was taken to Nambour Hospital and the other to Caboolture.

Both men were 'very lucky' not to have been more seriously injured.

They were said to be in a stable condition.


A CRASH between a truck and another vehicle on the Bruce Hwy has stopped southbound traffic between the Coast and Brisbane.

Emergency services were called to the scene, just south of the Wild Horse Mountain exit at Beerburrum, about 7.45am.

A witness said there was one truck and another vehicle in a ditch beside the highway.

The truck has rolled.

She said lots of debris was strewn across the southbound lanes, severely impeding traffic.

Drivers in the north bound lanes have also slowed past the crash site.
