Coomera woman to appear in court, accused of driving at pedestrians

A Coomera woman has been charged after she allegedly drove her vehicle into a crowd of pedestrians in South Brisbane overnight.

Police said that around 6.20pm, a vehicle was travelling on Little Stanley Street when it allegedly sped up, mounted the kerb and drove at a group of people who were walking on the footpath.

A man in the group was struck by the car, however he was lucky to have escaped with only minor injuries to his ankle and shoulder.

The car then allegedly sped off at high speed and was found at a home in Wilsonton a short time later, where a 35-year-old Coomera woman was taken into custody.

She has since been charged with four counts of acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm and is due to appear in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court today.
