UPDATE: Four were taken to hospital after serious crash

UPDATE THURSDAY: The Queensland Ambulance Service has confirmed that four people, including two children, were taken to hospital last night as a result of a serious traffic crash. 

The crash brought traffic to a stand-still on Walker St for a significant amount of time as queued up vehicles, including trucks, were unable to move until the scene was cleared. 

A spokesman for the Queensland Ambulance Service said two boys and a woman in her 40s were taken to hospital for spinal precautions. 

A man in his 30s was taken to hospital with chest and pelvic pain. 

A spokesman for the Queensland Police Service said it wasn't possible to speculate on the cause of the crash at this stage, but investigations were continuing. 

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: The intersection of Walker and Targo Sts is closed and traffic is being redirected after a two-vehicle smash just before 6pm.
