A man has been taken to hospital after a chaotic caravan crash on Brand Highway near Jurien Bay with traffic reportedly backed up “for miles”.

A Pajero towing a caravan was travelling north when it crashed about 40km south of Eneabba in Warradarge.

The cause of the accident is not clear but it is understood the Pajero and caravan flipped on their sides.

The male driver had serious cuts to his head and was taken to the Jurien Bay Hospital by St John Ambulance.

His passenger was not hurt.

A witness said holidaymakers, some getting out of the Perth and Peel regions to enjoy the start of the school holidays, were banked up “for miles” as a result of the crash.

“It looks like a caravan and SUV flipped over,” she said. “The SUV was pulled upright just before this photo was taken.

“An ambulance arrived about 10am before we came to a stop, with the accident ahead of us.

“Cars were lined up as tow trucks cleared the road.”
