Four people are in police custody after two cars were allegedly driven at high speed before crashing on the Sunshine Coast this afternoon.

It will be alleged around 12pm officers from the Road Policing Unit spotted a stolen grey Mercedes in the company of a black Commodore, both parked at traffic lights on the northern side of Nambour.

Police activated their lights and both of the vehicles immediately sped away, the Mercedes heading towards Nambour and the Commodore travelling towards Montville and Nambour Hospital.

A police car followed the Mercedes for a short time before the vehicle allegedly crossed to the wrong side of the road and into the path of oncoming traffic.

A police motorbike headed in the direction of the Commodore and came across a three vehicle traffic crash which had just occurred outside of the hospital.

Members of the public alerted the motorcycle officer to a man and girl allegedly fleeing the scene on foot.

The officer followed the man on his bike before reaching him. A brief struggle ensued and the 28-year-old man was arrested. A loaded firearm was also located in the vicinity of the arrest.
