Truck loses trailers on highway

A STRETCH of the Bruce Highway 2km north of Apple Tree Creek was closed in the early hours of this morning after two trailers came off a semi-trailer.

A Queensland Police spokesperson said initial investigations showed the trailers had disconnected from the B-double and ended up on the roadway about 2.40am and blocked the northbound lanes.

Motorists were advised to avoid the area, and were given an alternate route north via the Apple Tree Creek flyover to Bundaberg.

It is believed heavy lifting equipment was called in to remove the trailers from the highway.

No one was injured in the incident, and the area was cleared by about 8am.

It is the second incident on that stretch of highway in the past week, after a man died in a single-vehicle crash in Apple Tree Creek last Tuesday.
