A third crash this morning involving a truck and vehicle on the Bruce Highway caused huge traffic delays to both lanes of the Bruce Highway north of Gympie.

Paramedics assessed two people at the scene but neither required transport to hospital, a QAS spokeswoman said.

Another traffic incident 200m north of Bells Bridge added to major traffic delays in both directions.
