CHAOS is not far behind when wet weather hits a notorious stretch of road such as the Bruce Hwy.

Yesterday morning the driver of an army truck lost control and rolled off the road at Station Creek at Benaraby.

Nobody was injured when the people mover rolled down a 25m embankment.

However, the Queensland Ambulance Service was called after a driver complained of a sore neck.

The incident happened just after 10am and kept emergency services and army officers busy well into the afternoon.

There were many failed attempts to recover the crashed vehicle, which lay on its side next to the Bruce Hwy.

At one point, a crane was being considered as an option to assist in retrieving the fallen truck.

Many hours later, army officers were able to pull the vehicle from the ditch with a tow truck around 4pm.

The road was closed for a short time with assistance from police and QRFS while the vehicle was recovered.

Those left at the scene waited into the night for a truck travelling from Rockhampton to collect the vehicle.

The incident had little impact on traffic travelling on the Bruce Hwy.
