THERE were delays on the Warrego Highway outside of Roma for four hours today after a ute smashed into the back of a road marking vehicle.

Police said the road marking vehicle was parked on the shoulder of the road as the driver waited for the traffic to pass when the white Nissan ute collided with the back of the vehicle.

The ute then flipped, causing extensive damage to the vehicle.

Luckily both drivers were unhurt, although the driver of the ute was taken to hospital for a short time for observation.

Constable Renee Schneider said the road was closed from 1:30pm until 3pm.

"Both lanes reopened at 4pm after the clean-up," Const Schneider said.

She said police investigations into the accident were ongoing.  

The crash comes after a minor two vehicle collision yesterday on Burtons Road, north of Roma yesterday.

No one was injured in this crash.

These two crashes have been the latest in a long list of car crashes in the past few months and police are urging motorists to pay more attention around road works. 

Police said motorists need to pay attention, slow down and be patient when driving through road works.
