Man counts cost of high-speed chase

A 21-YEAR-OLD man will face court after a dramatic police chase from the Sunshine Coast to the north of Brisbane on Saturday left two police officers injured.
The Kallangur man allegedly rammed a police vehicle on Sunset Strip, Marcoola, about 9.15pm when officers identified the car he was driving as stolen and tried to intercept it.
The driver fled in the car and was later sighted travelling south at high speed on the Bruce Highway near Morayfield.
Tyre spikes were set up at the Buchannan Road overpass and two of the car’s tyres were punctured.
The driver continued on to Anzac Avenue, Kallangur, where he allegedly rammed a police van at 11pm causing it to roll onto its roof and injuring the officer inside.
The stolen car continued onto Narangba Road where it crashed into a gutter before the driver was arrested.
An officer’s hand was fractured in the struggle.
The man has been charged with dangerous driving and obstructing police.
