Bruce Highway reopened to one lane after motorhome crash

UPDATE 1.40PM: A SINGLE-VEHICLE accident took place on the Bruce Hwy, just south of Raglan Tavern at about 11am on Friday.

An elderly driver of a campervan lost control of his vehicle and overturned after over-correcting the van.

The 78-year-old was driving southbound on the Bruce Hwy when the crash occurred, which trapped him in the van for about 30 minutes.

Fuel was leaking, and a small fire started but was quickly controlled, as an off-duty nurse comforted the man.

The highway was closed for a short time to recover the vehicle, but police said there would be another closure later on Friday afternoon for tow trucks to remove the vehicle.

The RACQ Careflight Helicopter was called but was not required on scene.
