The footage captures the car coming to a stop just south of the Caboolture exit on the Bruce Highway.

Queensland Police have confirmed they are aware of the incident, which occurred south of the Bribie Island interchange just after 7am on Monday.

Police believe the driver involved may have suffered from "a medical incident" before the crash.

The man who captured the footage wrote the driver of the SUV was "pretty shaken up" after it came to a stop.

"He did not attempt to exit the car," he wrote on Facebook.

"If he had made it another 2-3km up the road where the traffic congestion worsens, this could have been much worse.

"From what I could see noone was injured.

"A fire and rescue vehicle appeared on the scene seconds after I pulled up (along with a hoard of other people)."
