Traffic has cleared on the Pacific Highway at Chinderah following an earlier single-vehicle accident in the southbound lane.

The driver, who had to be freed from the vehicle by emergency workers, has been taken to Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.

Original report, 7.30am: There has been a single vehicle accident at Chinderah, 500m south of Chinderah tunnel.

One southbound lane is blocked and the driver is reported to be still trapped in the vehicle.

Emergency services are in attendance.

Southbound traffic is being merged into one lane.

The Traffic Management Centre reports minimal delays currently but say this could increase as moves are made to recover the vehicle.
