UPDATE 10AM: The Ipswich Motorway has been cleared following a four vehicle crash earlier this morning.

Police say delays in clearing the crash, which was first reported 6.30am, were largely due to difficulties involved in moving a truck that was involved.

No serious injuries were reported.

The crash was one of several reported across the Ipswich area during morning peak-hour traffic.

Ipswich police say crashes were also reported on the Cunningham Hwy at Blackstone, Brisbane Rd at Bundamba, Cemetery Rd at Raceview and the intersection of Churchill St and East St near the Ipswich Hospital.

A 57-year-old woman was treated on scene by paramedics following the crash near the hospital, which was reported about 8am.

The crashes resulted in some considerable delays for commuters this morning.
