Bruce Hwy closed for hours after serious crash

RACQ has warned motorists the Bruce Highway near Childers would remain closed for hours after a serious crash involving a truck and three cars.

Club spokesperson Clare Hunter said the road was blocked in both directions near Gentle Annie Road after the truck rolled and three cars subsequently crashed.

“There are going to be extensive delays while police work to clear the scene,” Ms Hunter said.

“Three people have been taken to hospital with various injuries, but we are lucky there weren’t more serious casualties.

Ms Hunter said there was a diversion in place along Booyal Dallarnil Road.

“If you can, consider delaying your travel through the area or take an alternative route,” she said.

“You can visit RACQ Road Conditions for up to date information on road closures before you set off."
