Police allege the hit and run was a deliberate act following a “rolling road rage incident.”

“The two vehicles and their occupants had been interacting with each other for a period of half an hour,” Detective Inspector Paul Dalton told reporters on Saturday.

“We suspect that this has occurred in suburbs in between Everton Hills and where the incident has occurred at Wembley Rd at Browns Plains.”

A 20-year-old man was arrested at a home in Loganlea on Saturday afternoon.

He was charged with murder and was refused Police bail.

The man will front Beenleigh Magistrates Court on Monday.
