Highway reopens after two semi trailer crashes

UPDATE: TWO car drivers have been incredibly lucky to escape separate semi trailer crashes uninjured this morning.

At about 6.25am a crash between two semi trailers and a car closed northbound lanes of the Bruce Highway at Glasshouse (near the twin service stations.)

A police spokesman confirmed the car involved was severely damaged but the driver escaped uninjured.

Then about 20 minutes later only one kilometre up the road another semi trailer collided with a car.

This driver also escaped uninjured.

Both scenes caused heavy traffic delays for about an hour this morning but each crash has now been cleared and traffic is flowing again.
