Gold Coast 5 car pile-up caught on camera

A POLICE officers helmet camera has captured the moment a tired driver smashed into four cars and slammed into a kindergarten on the Gold Coast.

The incident took place alongside a police speed trap on Oxley Drive at Runaway Bay on Thursday.

Police were booking several motorists when one officer noticed the utility start to veer off the road around 50m up the street.


The officer had a video camera fixed to his police cap and captured the accident unfold.

Coomera Traffic boss Peter Liebig told the Gold Coast Bulletin that initial investigations indicated the driver, aged in his 50s, had a micro sleep and appeared confused after the crash.

Miraculously, no one was seriously injured.
