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.
