IT has been a horror day on the state's roads with a motorcyclist killed and police called to seven crashes in a matter of hours.

Police have confirmed a motorcycle rider has been killed on Durkins Rd at Quoiba in the North-West.

It is understood the bike and a trailer collided at 2.15pm.

As a result of the crash traffic remained banked up on Stony Rise Rd and motorists are asked to avoid the area for at least a couple of hours.

The crash brings the state's road toll to nine compared to six for the same period last year.

Elsewhere in the state a log truck caused significant delays this morning when it rolled over on the Arthur Highway at Forcett, just outside of Sorell in the south.

Police said no one was injured in the accident but traffic flow was reduced to just half a lane while the site was cleared.

Officers were at the scene to direct traffic, with motorists advised to avoid the area if possible.

Hazardous road conditions after heavy overnight rain caused havoc on the roads this morning.

Officers attended at least seven crashes, starting just before 7am today.

The most serious was at Broadmarsh, near Brighton, where a car rolled over on Black Brush Rd about 6.55am.

An ambulance was called but it is believed the female driver escaped without serious injury.

Police said other minor crashes occurred at Forcett, Cygnet and Glenorchy.

Officers also attended a four-car pile-up on the East Derwent Highway, at Otago Bay, later in the morning. No one was seriously injured.

"Motorists are reminded to drive according to the road conditions, allow sufficient time to safely reach their destination and to maintain a safe distance between other vehicles," a police spokeswoman said.
