THERE’S been a dramatic end to a police chase on the Gold Coast this afternoon, after a dangerous driver allegedly smashed into a pursuing patrol car.

Officers say they first noticed the vehicle travelling at high speed along Napper Road in Arundel shortly after 2pm.


A brief chase ensued after the speeding sedan – first thought to be stolen – failed to pull over for police.

It’s believed the driver led police down Chichester Drive, and into Pearson Close – a dead-end street – where the pursuit ended.

Bianca Stone from Seven News reports that the man was driving his mother’s car and allegedly spun out-of-control before ‘side-swiping’ a police car.

The police helicopter was also tasked to keep watch from the sky.

A police spokesperson said a total of four people had been taken into police custody and were assisting them with their enquiries.
