A Truck driver will front court following a near fatal crash on the South Eastern Freeway.

The Queensland man has been reported for driving dangerously, failing to use an arrestor bed and failing to use a low gear before a collision on Wednesday 11 September with seven vehicles and a cyclist.

The 57-year-old has also been issued a defect notice for faulty brakes and has lost his licence.

Authorities say it is a miracle that no one was seriously hurt.
