Queensland Ambulance paramedics were not treating anyone at the scene and later confirmed no one was injured in the crash.

The trailer had been righted by 9am, but police expected it would still take several hours to clear the motorway.

Police were investigating the circumstances of the crash and no one has been charged.

Firefighters also attended the rollover, but had left the scene by 7.40am.

Long delays have been reported on roads across the Gold Coast.
