Police investigating after truck fire closes busy Logan Motorway

Investigations are underway after a truck burst into flames on the Logan Motorway overnight.

It’s understood the truck was exiting the motorway when it collided with a guard rail on the Gailes off-ramp.

The truck then erupted into flames, with multiple emergency crews rushing to the scene.


The intense inferno closed the Logan Motorway exit for several hours, whilst the Ipswich Motorway was reduced to one lane as smoke shrouded the roads.

Thankfully, the driver of the truck managed to get out before it burst into flames.

Police investigations are continuing.
