Man hit by debris on M1

A man has a nasty chest injury after a pole flew off the back of a ute on the M1 and went through his windscreen.

Emergency crews got the call to Exit 71, the northbound off-ramp in Nerang, shortly before 8 on Tuesday morning.

A spokesperson said the wound wasn't life threatening but was significant.

The man, in his late 20s/early 30s, has been taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital.
