Three crashes on Ipswich road

BRISBANE Rd at Bundamba looked a bit like a demolition derby contest this morning after a series of rush-hour crashes on the busy road.

Police said the chain of events started just before 8.30am when two cars collided at the intersection of Brisbane Rd and Braeside Rd.

The driver of an unregistered red Nissan Pulsar sedan, a 37-year-old man from Biloela, was issued with a ticket for failing to give way.

The passenger of the blue Toyota Camry his car collided with was taken to Ipswich Hospital with minor injuries by Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics.

Less than 10 minutes later, there were two nose-to-tail crashes on the Ipswich-bound side of Brisbane Rd, one involving two cars and the other three.

Two drivers were given tickets for driving without due care and attention.

Police quickly got all vehicles off the side of the road - minimising traffic disruption - until they could be towed away.

Police said the whole scene was cleared up by 9.24.
