A crash involving 20 cars and a bus is causing traffic chaos at Jindalee in Brisbane’s west.
Emergency services were called to the crash on the outbound lanes of the Centenary Motorway about 2.15pm on Monday, as heavy rain, strong wind and hail hit parts of the region.
Twenty seven people have been assessed by paramedics.
Four patients are being treated at the scene – including a woman in her 40s and a man in his 50s.
Emergency services are urging drivers to avoid the Centenary Motorway (near the Jindalee Bridge) where possible.
Brisbane City Council Deputy Mayor Adrian Schrinner said authorities were still assessing the incident.
“There were multiple vehicles involved including a council bus,” Councillor Schrinner said.
“I understand there was a car in front of the bus which stopped suddenly.
“The bus crashed into the car and then many more cars crashed into that bus. So that’s the early report that I’ve had.”
