February 3, 2010

The busy Warrego Highway west of Brisbane was shutdown for about eight hours yesterday after a B-double rolled and spilled its load.

The truck was carrying watermelons when the incident occurred before 8pm, leaving emergency crews with an big clean-up job.

Police say no-one was injured, but motorists were forced to seek alternate routes to Toowoomba west of Brisbane and Ipswich, which is south of the state’s capital.
