Traffic has increased both north and south along the Pacific Highway south of Brisbane after two separate incidents occurred this afternoon: a collision of two vehicles and a car fire.
Two incidents caused traffic to crawl 27km in both directions from Carindale to Shiler Park.
A car fire broke out in the southbound lane of the Pacific Motorway near Underwood Road.
According to a Queensland fire department spokesman, the car was thought to be running on a tow truck, but was removed by paramedics and extinguished.
In another case, multiple vehicles collided on a northbound ramp at 12:38 pm.
One patient was taken to the stables at Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Police advise commuters to avoid the area.
