Multi-vehicle motorway crash causes peak-hour chaos

A WOMAN in her 40s has been hospitalised and traffic is blocked after a four-vehicle crash on the Sunshine Motorway this morning.

Paramedics were called to the crash on the motorway on-ramp at Mountain Creek about 8.30am and treated four women and a baby at the scene, a Queensland Ambulance spokeswoman said.

One of the women suffered a back injury and was taken to Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition. The four other patients declined ambulance transport.

Traffic is blocked heading towards Mooloolaba and delays are expected. Drivers are being urged to proceed with caution.
