An accident on the pacific highway heading south brought traffic to a standstill early Wednesday morning.  The crash occurred just past the Helen St Tunnel near tinderbox creek.

It appeared that a trailer had disconnected and collided with two utes causing a major closure that had drivers in gridlock for hours as emergency services rushed to the scene.

The RMS confirmed to the echo that a crash had occurred but had been resolved with no fatalities or injuries involved.

More to come.
