Petrol tanker jack-knifes on wet highway

THE driver of a petrol tanker escaped injury on Monday when his vehicle jack-knifed on a wet, slippery Warrego Highway and skidded off the road.

Traffic was reduced to one lane for several hours as crews worked at the scene, west of the Kholo Rd overpass in North Ipswich.

The tanker was empty, but there was a minor spill from the vehicle's own fuel supply.

The accident happened about 10.10am.
