90 minutes of traffic chaos

TWO colliding trucks and an overturning excavator caused 90 minutes of lunch-time traffic chaos.

Police said a large truck and a smaller truck with a dog trailer collided on the Warrego Hwy outside Ipswich about midday.

There were conflicting reports about details but one of the trucks was carrying an excavator and it fell off the truck and overturned.

The collision was just short of the Kholo Rd exit on the Brisbane-bound side of the highway.

Reports conflicted about whether the right hand lane was blocked but traffic controllers arrived to direct traffic around the crash.

Police said the scene was cleared by about 1.30pm and the cause of the crash was being investigated.
