UPDATE: The driver of a B-double that rolled on Cunningham's Gap this morning has been taken to hospital with multiple injuries, as emergency crews prepare to shut the down-section of the road to recover the truck.

Emergency services crews were called to the scene of the rollover on the east-bound lane at 8.20am.

The male driver of the truck has been transported to Warwick Hospital with a minor head injury and leg and back injuries.

Currently the Cunningham Highway remains open, but crews are planning on closing the Gap later this morning to salvage the truck and tidy up the scene.

Some delays are expected.
