MAJOR DELAYS: Bruce Hwy at crawl after smash

UPDATE: Witnesses say the man whose car flipped on the Bruce Highway is "very lucky" to be alive. 

Northbound drivers can still expect long delays as emergency crews clear the area. 

One witness at the scene was driving behind the man before the crash, and told the Sunshine Coast Daily the driver narrowly missed hitting another car when he swerved off the highway. 

"He nearly wiped her out," the witness said.

The car spun and rolled, landing on its roof on the northbound shoulder, and passerby rushed to the vehicle expecting the worst.

But the driver walked away from the crash, and declined transport to hospital. 

Paramedics said he had no serious injuries.

Northbound drivers can expect delays of about 15 minutes between the Caloundra Rd interchange and the crash scene.

More to come.
