There have been two highway crashes north of Byron this morning.

Northbound traffic was reduced to one lane shortly before 8.30am after two cars crashed near Chinderah Bay Drive.

Police were on-scene but the incident was declared over by 8.50am.

Meanwhile a clean-up was still happening at Crabbes Creek near Hulls Road after a truck rolled over shorty after 5am.

A Transport Management Centre spokesman said the driver got out of the truck alive but Northbound traffic was reduced to one lane and was expected to stay that way for until shortly before 10am.

The spokesman said the Pantech truck had been carrying furniture and other items and there was debris on the road.

He advised drivers in the area to take care.
