Major Delays On Queensland Highway After Dramatic End To Police Chase

There's been a dramatic end to a wild police chase in Queensland, with an allegedly stolen car flipping on a major highway causing delays.

Two people suspected to be behind an alleged carjacking of a woman at Hervey Bay earlier today have been arrested on the Sunshine Coast, in a dramatic end to a high-speed chase.

Queensland Police officers closed in after an allegedly stolen white Toyota Corolla flipped on the Bruce Highway at Coochin Creek around 12.15pm.

The highway, which is the major connecting road between the Sunshine Coast, Caboolture and Brisbane, experienced major delays near Roys Rd on Friday afternoon.

It's alleged the car was stolen at gunpoint about 10am before it was driven 250km south before crashing.

Police said they began following the car at Forest Glen as it travelled along the highway.

The car had been driven from Hervey Bay to Maryborough and onto the Maryborough-Cooloola Rd and Tin Can Bay Rd to Gympie, before it continued to travel south on the highway, according to police.

A man and woman have been taken into custody. The driver of another car involved in the crash was taken to Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

Dramatic footage captured by 10 News First shows the flipped car surrounded by police on the highway.
