Emergency crews rushed to the scene to provide medical treatment. The bus driver and the driver of the car both sustained injuries and were transported to Prince Charles Hospital and Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in stable condition.

Authorities report the bus was cleared from the scene, but major delays remain on Gympie Rd southbound heading into peak hour traffic. Motorists are strongly advised to avoid the area and seek alternate routes.

Queensland Police traffic units are on site attempting to direct vehicles around the crash site. However, the intersection remains severely congested with stop-and-go traffic building.

This collision compounds an already difficult week for bus safety in the region. Just days ago, a young woman named Tia Cameron tragically lost her life in a fatal bus crash. Another head-on bus collision also occurred in Labrador.

Investigators will work to determine the cause of today’s accident as crews continue emergency response and traffic control efforts. Commuters should expected continued gridlock on Gympie Rd for the next several hours and are urged to postpone unnecessary travel or identify alternate paths.
