The Bruce Highway at Cromarty is expected to be closed until at least mid-afternoon due to an overnight truck crash (December 26).
Around 10pm, a B-Double truck heading north on the Bruce Highway left the roadway at the Mackenzie Creek Bridge, coming to rest in the creek bed.
The truck driver, a 49-year-old man, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to the Townsville University Hospital for treatment.
Diversions are in place for cars only, while emergency services clear the scene, via Woodstock-Giru Road.
The diversion is not suitable for heavy vehicles and any vehicles towing should take caution.
The bridge will be examined prior to re-opening.
Investigations are continuing.
