A caravan has ‘disintegrated’ after a collision with a truck on the Gateway Motorway in Brisbane’s east.
A Queensland Ambulance spokeswoman said the driver of the four-wheel-drive towing the van was taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in a stable condition.
Police say the caravan ‘disintegrated’ upon impact with the truck. A Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said the caravan and the four-wheel-drive had suffered “substantial damage” and the motorway was “covered in debris”.
It is understood that the four-wheel-drive towing the caravan was attempting to merge near the Meadowlands Road overpass just before 10.30am today when the accident happened.
It sparked a massive clean-up operation and caused massive delays, with northbound traffic backed up for six kilometres at one stage.
