The vehicle at one point turned into Nicol Street where police will allege a marked police vehicle was rammed, damaging the front bumper and bonnet of the vehicle, when the suspect vehicle sped off.

The vehicle momentarily stopped in Dulong Road where two passengers, a man and women, got out of the car however they were quickly taken into custody by police.

The vehicle came to a stop at the intersection of Matthew Street and Coronation Drive, Nambour at around 9pm. Police will allege the male driver, and now sole occupant of the vehicle, refused to leave the vehicle and struggled violently with officers before being restrained with the assistance of a police dog.
