THE Dawson highway was closed overnight for five hours after a truck rolled over blocking both lanes.

A Queensland police spokeswoman said police were called to the scene 10km west of Calliope just before 7pm last night.

She said the driver was unharmed in the rollover.

The highway was cleared and reopened just before midnight.
