They assessed on patient at the scene, before taking them to Nambour Hospital in a stable condition for further treatment.

Not long after, emergency services were called to another crash on the Bruce Highway at Forest Glen.

It was unclear how many patients needed treatment as a result of that crash.

According to witness statements the truck had just left a quarry a few kilometres down the road.

The driver of another truck following behind the vehicle said mechanical failure was the suspected cause of the crash as no speeed, car, animal or bad road conditions appeared to be involved.

The owner of the truck had arrived on the scene and was upset to see the vehicle ruined.

He said he had spent about $70,000 on maintaining the vehicle last year, and it was one of a fleet of 54 which had carried more than 10,000 loads from the nearby quarry.
