Truck rollover closes highway for five hours

THE Dawson highway was closed overnight for five hours after a truck rolled over blocking both lanes.

A Queensland police spokeswoman said police were called to the scene 10km west of Calliope just before 7pm last night.

She said it appeared the driver of a B double had been travelling down an incline before the truck lost control.

She said the driver was unharmed in the rollover.

The highway was cleared and reopened just before midnight.
