Gridlock on the Bruce Hwy now spans at least 10km after a two-vehicle crash at a notorious Sunshine Coast interchange left a woman injured.

Paramedics are transporting one female patient to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition, after she was injured in the highway smash just south of the Sunshine Motorway interchange at Sippy Downs. 

She was one of three patients paramedics assessed at the crash scene.

Traffic has banked in the northbound lanes past the Caloundra interchange and down to the Beerwah State Forest.

 Emergency crews are rushing to the scene of a reported crash on the Bruce Highway, at a notorious Sunshine Coast interchange.

A 000 caller reported the crash at the interchange onto the Sunshine Motorway about 2.14pm.

The crash scene is in the northbound lanes, just before the Sunshine Motorway exit towards Sippy Downs.

The stretch on and just before the ramp is notorious for collisions, near-misses and congestion.

Traffic has already ground to a halt in the northbound lanes, with traffic impacted almost as far as the Caloundra interchange.

More to come.
