Three teens charged over alleged stolen car crash on M1

Three teenagers have been arrested and charged after they allegedly crashed a stolen car on the Pacific Motorway in the early hours of this morning.

The chaos unfolded northbound at the Hope Island Road off-ramp in Oxenford around 2.20am.

Police say the trio, a 17-year-old boy, 14-year-old boy, and 16-year-old girl, were allegedly travelling along the M1 in a stolen BMW when they collided with another vehicle.


The teens managed to flee the scene before emergency crews arrived, however they were tracked down by police on Low Street in Upper Coomera around an hour later.

All three were taken into custody and have since been charged with unlawful use of motor vehicles, while the 14-year-old boy has also been charged with possessing dangerous drugs.

The driver of the car the teens allegedly crashed into, a 56-year-old man, was injured in the accident and has been taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.

The BMW involved was allegedly stolen from a home on Palm Avenue in Surfers Paradise overnight, along with a Hyundai Tuscon, which is yet to be located.

Anyone with information is being urged to come forward.

Yes and the government still thinks the laws are good enough.
Police have had enough!
Public have had enough!
Politicians won’t care until it happens to them or one of their families.
Too late then.

And guess where they are from? starts with L

This is all to common now. Crash yesterday and a crash with deaths last week.
The young people have no fear of the consequences. The law is to soft on them.
So they just keep doing it time after time..
Something has to be done. There is not enough police to resolve this

What are they doing? Aren’t they going to school? They should get suspended and put behind bars at least for 10

The Government has a requirement and obligation to totally investigate the lawlessness of this part of Brisbane. Innocent people are being killed and it will get worse unless a task force is appointed to administer the law. How much worse will it become before they act?

Rob, I fear the Puddleduck government is hoping this will go away. The police minister likened it to theft of a kitkat!

Juvenile justice..
The Qld Government Police Minister really is out of touch.
His statement referring to the theft of a kitkat by juveniles. When all are refering to the alleged 17 year old murderer.
b*****s the question! Does the Puddleduck lot really stand for the people or the criminals????

It’s all about the money.
Locking people up costs in excess of $100k PA.
That’s less $$ for the Qld politicians who have already made this State broke!

It’s the same group of teens from Labrador. The police have done nothing. They have committed so many crimes.
