Truck jackknife shuts Bruce Highway lane south of Mackay

A TRUCK has jackknifed on the Bruce Highway south of Mackay earlier this evening.

As a result, the northbound lane of the Bruce Highway about 5km south of Koumala was closed to traffic.

A Queensland Police Service spokesman said the rear trailer of the B-double truck came off the road in the crash about 6pm.

But the driver received no injuries in the crash, the spokesman said.

“Only one lane is reduced and it should be reopened in about a half-hour, 20 minutes,” he said.
