Friday afternoon traffic chaos after car spins out on M1

Motorists travelling southbound on the Pacific Motorway this afternoon are being warned to brace for lengthy delays following a single-vehicle crash.

It’s understood a car has lost control and spun out in the southbound lanes of the M1 at Upper Coomera, under the Foxwell Road Overpass.

Emergency crews including police, firies and paramedics are on scene, however, it’s not yet known if anyone has been injured.


At least one lane has been blocked, with the crash causing chaos for the Friday afternoon run home.

Delays are currently all the way back to Ormeau and are only expected to grow as peak hour hits.

Drivers are being urged to delay travel if possible or seek alternative routes.
