Truck Reportedly Rolled Onto Police Vehicle On M1 Exit
Afternoon commuters, avoid the M1 at all costs. A truck has reportedly rolled onto a Police vehicle.
The incident occurred on the Helensvale South exit heading Southbound and has caused traffic to bank up.
Some lane closures between exits 62 and 66 have added to the traffic congestion.
Northbound lanes have also allegedly slowed as a result of the crash.

A person has been cut free from a wreck.
Emergency crews were called to a southbound exit of the Pacific Motorway at Helensvale about 11.30am on Monday.
The Queensland Ambulance Service said four units attended to treat three patients, including one person who was trapped in a vehicle.
The Queensland Fire and Emergency Service sent four units and said firefighters had freed the patient about 20 minutes later using hydraulic equipment.
Photographs from the scene showed the truck on its side and the back end of the police car severely crushed.
The Queensland police service wasn't able to confirm that an officer had been trapped, but said two lanes of the motorway were closed.
