Road closed, two injured in chaotic morning on motorway

THE Sunshine Motorway is closed at Coolum Beach and a woman has been hospitalised after a car reportedly rammed into the back of a truck this morning, creating nightmare peak-hour traffic.

A Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said emergency services were called to the three-vehicle crash, south of the Yandina Coolum roundabout, just before 8am.

She said the motorway was blocked, with no movement in either direction.

A woman in her 40s has been taken to Nambour Hospital in a stable condition as a precaution, a Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said.

Queensland Transport has advised motorists to expect long delays and to seek an alternative transport method.

A man with back and neck injuries has also been taken to hospital after a two-vehicle crash at Mountain Creek this morning. 

Paramedics were called to the crash on the Sunshine Motorway about 8.55am and transported the man to Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.

Traffic is congested heading east towards Mooloolaba and delays are expected. Drivers have been urged to proceed with caution.
