ONE adult and three children were taken to Gympie Hospital with minor injuries after an early morning crash on the Bruce Highway at Bells Bridge.

The single vehicle incident occurred at approximately 4am when the white Holden Astra hatchback came off the road just north of the Bells Bridge intersection.
