Police have charged four people after a stolen car allegedly deliberately rammed into a police vehicle near Caboolture early yesterday morning, Queensland Police say.
It will be alleged on October 24, a Subaru Outback was stolen from a residence at Albany Creek.
At 11.57pm on October 31 police observed the stolen vehicle in Silver Street at Deception Bay. Police activated lights and sirens and the vehicle accelerated away before allegedly conducting a u-turn and drove directly at the police vehicle causing them to take evasive action.
At 12.09am the stolen vehicle travelled through road works on Uhlmann Road at Burpengary and accelerated through the zone knocking witch’s hats over and barely missing oncoming traffic.
At 12.27am police observed the vehicle on Glenwood Drive Morayfield and activated lights and sirens. The vehicle has accelerated away and turned onto Caboolture River Road. Police have continued to pursue the vehicle to the end of McNamara Road at Rocksberg.
The vehicle has driven through a closed gate onto private property.
The police vehicle has stopped in front of the gate and an officer has moved the damaged gate. It will be alleged the stolen vehicle has turned around and began to accelerate toward the stationary police vehicle. The driver of the police vehicle also exited the vehicle for safety.
The stolen vehicle has driven at the police vehicle ramming into the vehicle and pushing it approximately 30 metres.
The stolen vehicle was damaged and unable to be driven with its four occupants fleeing on foot. Two were located shortly after and the other two were arrested later in the day (November 1).
