Police are investigating following five separate traffic crashes in Tanawha on the Sunshine Coast overnight, July 2.
Officers were called to the Bruce Highway near Ilkley Road just before 8pm after a car travelling northbound left the road and collided with a barrier.
The driver, a 37-year-old Graceville man, then exited the vehicle on foot, and ran across the Highway into southbound traffic.
A car swerved to avoid colliding with the pedestrian and subsequently rolled multiple times.
The pedestrian was struck by another vehicle a short time later.
He received minor injuries and was transported to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.
A B-double truck that was travelling northbound at the time, swerved to avoid the initial crash scene, striking a vehicle in the left hand lane, causing it to roll.
In total, ten vehicles were involved in five separate traffic crashes, with six people transported to hospital with minor injuries.
Witness or anyone with relevant dashcam footage or CCTV is urged to contact police.
Investigations are continuing.
