Brisbane traffic: five-car crash causes heavy delays on Pacific Motorway

Summer holidays are a distant memory for commuters on Brisbane's south side on Wednesday morning, with heavy delays on the Pacific Motorway after a five-car bingle.

Traffic was crawling inbound for more than 12 kilometres between Loganholme and Yatala, after a five-car nose-to-tail accident just before 6am.

An Australian Traffic Network spokesman said the crash has been cleared but heavy delays were expected to remain for some time.

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said one patient was assessed by paramedics at the scene but did not require transport.

On the city's east side, a crash between a motorcyclist and a car in Old Cleveland Road in Carina has also caused heavy delays.

The crash occurred about 6.30am near the intersection of Mayfield Road and blocked the inbound lanes.

Police diverted traffic around the crash scene and congestion was back to Creek Road, according to the ATN, as paramedics treated the rider.

The motorcyclist suffered a shoulder injury, the QAS spokeswoman said.

The scene has since been cleared and traffic is expected to ease quickly.
