Delays build after smash on wet M1

10:25 AM | MOTORISTS heading south to the Gold Coast are being slowed down by a crash on the M1.

The accident happened in the southbound lanes of a wet M1 near Exit 49 at Pimpama around 9.45am on Sunday.

It’s understood two cars were involved, with one of them, a silver sedan, spinning out and smashing into a guardrail.


The wrecked sedan came to rest just before the exit, with the front of the vehicle obstructing the left-hand lane.

Thankfully, the occupants appear to have escaped serious injury.

Although the prang has only blocked one lane, it has triggered congestion in all four between Pimpama and Ormeau.

Drivers are being urged to slow down through the area, with delays stretching for almost 4km at 10.25am.
