UPDATE: One person was injured this morning in the Bruce Hwy crash that involved four people in two cars. 

Paramedics assessed all four people, with three escaping injury in the nose-to-tail collision in the left hand northbound lane of the Bruce Hwy.

A fourth person sustained a hand injury, but was not taken to hospital. 

Traffic has cleared and is flowing as normal since the left lane reopened. 

The crash site was just before the notorious Sippy Downs exit, which at times comes to a sudden standstill when drivers slow or stop to let motorists cross from the Sunshine Motorway to Wilson Rd.
