A multi-vehicle crash near Clothiers Creek on the Pacific Motorway (M1) has closed one lane of northbound traffic.

The incident happened at around 5am this morning and involved three B-double trucks and two cars.

‘About 5.20am this morning police and other emergency services attended an incident on the M1 northbound,’ Tweed Byron Police District Detective Chief Inspector, Matt Kehoe told The Echo.

‘Police found that three B-double trucks and two sedans were involved. Thankfully no one was injured. Two of the B-double trucks were broken down and a third B–double truck collided with one of those and left the roadway into a culvert nearby.

‘We still have one lane northbound that is closed. It is expected that will remain closed until after lunch,’ he said.

‘We are in the process of organising heavy vehicle tows to get the trucks removed. One is coming from the Gold Coast, one from Bangalow, and one from Brisbane. Will also need three to four trucks to remove the one that ran off the road.

‘We are asking people to drive slowly and if they can to avoid the area until after lunch.’
