Two grey nomads have been taken to hospital after their caravan was in collision with a B-Double north of Brisbane.
The crash at Bells Creek 5 kilometres south of the Caloundra Rd exit this morning caused huge delays on the Bruce Highway, with tailbacks of up to five kilometres on the southbound lanes being reported. Traffic is now reportedly moving freely again.
The occupants of the 4WD towing the caravan were both taken to Nambour Hospital in a stable condition following the accident.
A Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said a man in his 70s sustained a fractured ankle, while a woman suffered “no obvious injuries” but was transported for treatment.
The truck driver is not believed to have been injured.
The B-double came to a stop on the median strip of the Bruce Highway after the accident, while the 4WD and caravan were parked on the other side of the road.
The caravan suffered significant damage with one side of the van being ripped open.
The circumstances surrounding the collision are now being investigated.
