Road rage incident blamed for M1 delays

A ROAD RAGE incident is being blamed for heavy delays on the M1 during Tuesday’s peak run on the Gold Coast.

At 8:45am someone dialled triple zero to say that a man was jumping on a car and smashing the windscreen.

Police went to the Helensvale Road off ramp and remain there.


At this stage there are no reports of any arrests being made.

Paramedics treated the driver of one car for shock.

The incident affected southbound lanes and happened not far from the Smith Street turn-off Exit 66.

It comes after an earlier accident on Smith Street heading east caused things to bank up back onto the M1.

Witnesses say a tow truck carted away two cars.
