All fire crews have left the scene.

Northbound lanes remain closed, with diversions along Gentle Annie Rd. 

12:55PM: EARLIER reports of the Bruce Hwy re-opening appear to have been premature - Gladstone police have confirmed the Bruce remains closed to traffic, with a diversion in place via Gentle Annie Rd.

Updates to follow.

9:34AM: THE BRUCE Hwy is now closed in both directions at the scene of this morning's crash south of Raglan, about 10km north of Mt Larcom.

Diversions are in place for traffic via Gentle Annie Rd.

Police, fire and council crews are currently on the scene working to clear the road of potentially hazardous chemicals and an exclusion zone is in place.

9AM: TRAFFIC could be delayed along the Bruce Hwy as Queensland Fire and Emergency Services crews clean up chemicals spilt when a prime mover crashed this morning.

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesperson said the driver was taken to Rockhampton Hospital with back pain about 6am.

They said he had got out of the vehicle after it had crashed and rolled about 10km north of Mount Larcom.

However, motorists may face some delays as crews clean up the chemicals the prime mover was carrying, believed to be fertiliser and pesticides.

Queensland Ambulance Service remains on standby as Queensland Fire an Emergency Services crews make the scene safe.
