Truck crash on Gateway Motorway sees cars showered in debris
A massive clean-up effort is underway following a truck crash on a motorway in Brisbane’s northeast.
Just after 10:30am this morning, a truck struck a concrete barrier travelling southbound on the Gateway Motorway.
The crash caused up to nine cars travelling underneath the bridge on Lavarack Ave to be covered in plasterboard.

A clean-up is now underway and police are urging motorists to stay away from the area.
Some southbound lanes of the motorway have been closed.
Unbelievably, no one was injured.
