It's reported that a car was travelling northbound when it spun out, off the road, and into the median strip in the middle of the highway one kilometre north of Johnston Road.

A QAS media spokesman believed young female had sustained rib injuries and that there also may be a child on board but crews hadn't arrived on the scene yet.

Traffic is beginning to build up as a result of the crash.
