The incident has prompted police to issue a warning to motorists about the dangers of speeding in built-up areas.

“Speed is a contributing factor to a high proportion of serious traffic crashes in Queensland and local police will continue to target dangerous road use behaviour across the Gold Coast,” they said in a statement.
