Teens lead cops on wild chase in stolen Porsche
THREE teenagers have been charged with multiple offences after a wild chase from the Gold Coast to the Sunshine Coast last night ended in a dramatic Bruce Highway arrest.
A police spokesman said a Porsche Cayenne was spotted about 7.30pm in Surfers Paradise and PolAir tracked it north to Caloundra.
At North Lakes a marked police car attempted to intercept the car, however it's alleged the Porsche accelerated north at dangerously high speeds, estimated to be in excess of 200km/h.
Multiple witnesses have reported seeing the Porsche "fly" past them on the road.
Tyre deflation devices were used on Caloundra Rd and Ridgewood Dr about 9.15pm. The Porsche allegedly continued driving on two rims, travelling back onto the Bruce Highway heading south.
A police car travelling in front of the stolen vehicle is alleged to have been deliberately rammed. The impact resulted in the spare wheel dislodging from the police car and jamming underneath the stolen vehicle.
About 9.35pm the car stopped on the Bruce Highway at Landsborough.
A 17-year-old male driver and his two 16-year-old passengers were taken into custody. No one was injured in the incident.
