The Queensland Ambulance Service said six injured people had been transported to hospital, while another seven had been assessed at the scene.

As a result of the crash, the northbound lane has been forced to close, causing traffic to bank up.

The M1 remains completely out of action from Greenslopes with diversions at Gaza Rd and delays as far as the eye can see. 

Queensland police are warning of major delays and urging commuters to avoid the area.


“The Pacific Motorway is completely BLOCKED northbound before Juliette Street at Greenslopes due to a multi vehicle crash,” they said on Tuesday morning.

"Please delay your trip this way as it’s causing major delays.”

Queensland Police Senior Sergeant Todd Sucic confirmed no-one was seriously injured.

“There were a few people injured as a result of this traffic accident and they’ve been taken to local hospitals for observations and treatment but there were no serious injuries fortunately.”
