Paramedics were called to the crash on the Bruce Hwy on ramp at Deception Bay Rd where three people were injured.
Two patients with chest pain were taken to Caboolture Hospital.
Less than 40 minutes later three vehicles collided in the south-bound lanes of the Bruce Hwy 1km north of the Morayfield exit.
Four people were checked over at the scene and a woman in her mid-twenties was taken to Caboolture Hospital.
The crash caused partial lane closures in southbound lanes near the Captain Whish Bridge over Caboolture River at Morayfield.
