Slippery roads prove a challenge for drivers

THE wet weather played havoc with Ipswich motorists yesterday, with several crashes reported in the early afternoon.

A truck crash delayed west-bound motorists on the Ipswich Motorway from 12.40pm.

The truck hit a concrete barrier near the Redbank exit, resulting in the temporary closure of one lane.

The driver was not injured and the vehicle was towed away by about 2pm.

Just after midday, a two-vehicle crash briefly blocked Mt Crosby Rd at Mt Crosby.

There were no injuries and only minor damage.

About 2.40pm another crash was reported on the Warrego Highway at Haigslea.

Two vehicles had to be towed away but there were no injuries.
