Police are investigating a serious, two vehicle traffic crash in Brisbane’s south last night.

At 9.30pm, emergency services were called to the corner of Clendon St and Progress Rd at Wacol following the crash.

The crash resulted in one of the vehicles hitting a power pole before it landed on its side.

The 33-year-old female driver and sole occupant of the vehicle was transported to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in a critical condition.

A police dog tracked the man to the intersection of Garden and Pine Rd at Richlands, concealed in bushland, where he was taken into custody.

He was transported the Princess Alexandra Hospital for treatment to a police dog bite to his upper thigh.
