Delays on Pacific Motorway after serious multi-vehicle collision

Heavy delays are expected on a major highway, south of Brisbane, after several cars collided in a crash that landed four people in hospital.

Heavy delays are polluting a major motorway out of Brisbane, after multiple cars collided on Sunday.

Eleven people narrowly escaped serious injury, after seven cars collided on the Pacific Motorway at Springwood.

A spokesperson from Queensland Police said it was a nose-to-tail scenario and occurred in the northbound lanes of the highway.

Paramedics treated four people with minor injuries at the scene, with several others fortunate to walk away unscathed.

Three adults patients were transported to hospital in stable conditions.

The crash caused traffic chaos on the northbound lanes of the motorway and surrounding roads, with long delays expected into the afternoon.

The incident caused traffic to build up back to the Bryants Road exit, almost 9km from the scene of the crash.

Delays have stretched out to 20 minutes for motorists, as authorities continue the clean-up.
