Teenage girls charged after allegedly crashing stolen car into police

Two teenage girls have been arrested and charged, after crashing a stolen vehicle into a police car last night.

Officers spotted a stolen Hyundai i30 driving ‘erratically’ along Smith Street in Labrador just after 6.30pm.

They tracked the car’s movements, and followed it into a unit block car park on Usher Avenue.

The stolen vehicle then tried to drive out of the car park – crashing into the police vehicle on the way, damaging both cars in the process.

The 19-year-old driver and a 15-year-old female passenger were transported to Gold Coast University Hospital and were treated for minor injuries.

Two police officers also had to go to hospital for observation.

Police allegedly found a quantity of drugs, utensil and a knife while searching the vehicle, which is believed to have been stolen from an address in Mermaid Waters over the weekend.

The 15-year-old girl has been charged with the unlawful use of a motor vehicle and will be dealt with under the provisions of the Youth Justice Act.

The 19-year-old woman has been charged with one count each of burglary, receiving tainted property, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and possession of a knife in a public place.

She has also been charged with other drug related offences and is due to appear at Southport Magistrates Court this morning, November 11.

Investigations are continuing.
