Man charged after crashing into pole in Southport

A driver faces a whole host of charges after crashing into a pole in Southport overnight.

At around 11.30PM on Thursday night, a man drove his car into a pole on Wardoo Street.  He allegedly tried to run off but was prevented by an off-duty officer.

The 35-year-old from Springfield Lakes refused to take a breath test at the scene and has been slapped with multiple offences, including not having a licence and obstructing police.


The Queensland Ambulance Service said the man was taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.

He is due in Southport Magistrates Court on Friday.
