Five arrested over stolen car crashing spree, northern Gold Coast

It was a busy night for police on the Gold Coast, with officers tracking a stolen car in Oxenford.

They first spotted the Honda SUV driving southbound on the M1 around 1.45 am, before taking exit 57 and crashing into a pole along Hope Island Road.

It then also collided with the median strip on Reserve Road, leaving debris on the roadway, according to police.

It continued driving until it turned onto Pandanus Place in Upper Coomera, where five offenders then tried to run from the scene.

Police were able to arrest all five nearby without incident, and they’ve all been taken into custody.

No charges have been laid just yet.

The car is believed to have been stolen from a home in Sunnybank Hills on September 13.

Investigations are still underway.

In a separate incident on the Gold Coast last night, police were called to the Gold Coast Highway in Mermaid Beach around 2.20 am following reports of a single-vehicle rollover.

The driver immediately fled the scene, but members of the public were able to restrain another man at the scene until police arrived.

The car, a white Toyota Corolla, is not believed to have been stolen, but police are keen to follow up with the driver.

The second man, aged in his 20s, had to be hospitalised after suffering head and neck injuries.

He’s in a stable condition in the Gold Coast University Hospital.
